At least 32 Kenyans were on board in the Boeing 737-Max Ethiopian plane during the March 10 tragedy, which killed 157 passengers.
The families of the victims of the crash were at JKIA early in the morning waiting for clearance.
Hearses were lined up at the VIP gate.
A preliminary report released in April indicated that the Ethiopian Airlines pilots wrestled with a computer system that repeatedly ordered the nose down because of faulty sensor data.
The same system was a focus of the preliminary report into the October Lion Air crash in Indonesia, which killed 189 people.
The Ethiopian Airlines Corporate Communications Director Asrat Begashaw said there were 33 nationalities on board.
The Boeing 737 passenger jet, which was new, is said to have had 149 passengers and eight crew on board.
