Sunday's flight left Bole airport in Addis Ababa at 8:38 a.m. (0538 GMT), before losing contact with the control tower just a few minutes later at 8:44 a.m.
The cause of the crash of the new Boeing 737-8 MAX plane was not immediately known.
The Max mock-up is the newest version of Boeing's workhorse 737 models, the world's most popular commercial aircraft.
As the sun set, the airline's chief operating officer said the plane's flight data recorder had not yet been found.
"At this stage, we can not rule out anything", Ethiopian Airlines CEO Tewolde Gebremariam told reporters, "we can not also attribute the cause to anything because we will have to comply with the worldwide regulation to wait for the investigation".
Records show that the Ethiopian Airlines passenger plane that crashed was a new one.
"Ethiopian is Africa's biggest airline, and recently the airport in Addis Ababa overtook Dubai as the leading gateway to sub-Saharan Africa", Peralta reports.
The CEO has visited the crash site today.
The fleet will continue flying since the cause of the crash is not clear, the CEO said.
