(Bloomberg) — Hong Kong’s aviation regulator lifted its ban on the Boeing Co. 737 Max, allowing airlines to resume flights almost three years after the jetliner was grounded.

Operators that intend to fly the Max in Hong Kong airspace and to Hong Kong International Airport will need to comply with either a U.S. Federal Aviation Administration airworthiness directive from late 2020 or make equivalent design changes, the Director General of Civil Aviation said in circular dated Jan. 21.
