Malaysia lifts ban on Boeing 737 MAX flights.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM) has lifted a ban on Boeing 737 MAX flights after more than two years, it said in a statement Thursday.

CAAM lifted the suspension as it released a new safety directive applicable to Malaysian and foreign air operators on Thursday.

On the 737 MAX, the regulator said it had been closely monitoring the approval process and extensive work undertaken, particularly from Boeing and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and accepted the comprehensive return-to-service requirements set by the FAA for the plane.

Last week, India’s air safety regulator also cleared the aircraft to fly with immediate effect.
