Air Lease Corp. is considering reinstating some previously canceled Boeing Co. 737 Max orders, though not until more regulators clear the jet’s return, Chairman Steven Udvar-Hazy said.

Los Angeles-based Air Lease, one of the world’s largest aircraft leasing firms, had committed to 195 Max purchases as of year-end 2019, including orders, options and planes already delivered.
