American Airline Firm Cautions about 5G Disruption Possibly Lasting for Years to Come

The Index Today

Airlines for America, an organization representing major commercial and cargo airlines in the U.S., has contended that the 5G wireless issue can possibly take years to be fully addressed and resolved as it continues to drive a wedge between the airline and wireless sectors of the country.

Nick Calio, Airlines for America Head, is set to submit a written testimony to a House Transportation and Infrastructure subcommittee about how the recently launched 5G wireless service impedes operations onboard. Airlines for America represents major U.S. aviation companies including United Airlines, American Airlines, and FedEx among others.

According to Reuters’ review of Calio’s testimony, which has not been made public yet, "It will likely take years, not days or weeks, to fully and permanently mitigate the interference issues caused by deployment of 5G in the C-band."

This comes after prominent telecommunication firms AT&T and Verizon agreed to postpone installing wireless towers near select airports following complaints by various airline companies and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) who warned against the possible disruption it could cause.
