Thirteen Chinese airline companies have said they now allow passengers to use electronic devices, including cellphones, during flights, after the country’s aviation regulator eased rules on the matter.

State-owned China Eastern Airlines Co. Ltd. became the first to allow the use of electronic devices. Airlines that followed include Air China Ltd. and Hainan Airlines Group (HNA), which operates nearly a dozen different carriers.
