As new 5G signals in US interfere with safety, Air India curtails flights
"Due to deployment of 5G communications in the USA, our operations to the USA from India stand curtailed/revised with change in aircraft type from January 19, 2022. Update in this regard will be informed shortly," said Air India in a tweet. The United Airlines also said the 5G rollout will affect an estimated 1.25 million United passengers, 15,000 flights and cargo service at more than 40 airports in the United States.

NEW DELHI, Jan 19: Air India has curtailed its flights to the US where 5G has been adopted which interferes with the electronic equipments in the aircraft. 5G is the 5th generation mobile wireless technology which is being deployed in developed countries currently.

"#FlyAI: Due to deployment of 5G communications in the USA, our operations to the USA from India stand curtailed/revised with change in aircraft type from January 19, 2022. Update in this regard will be informed shortly," Air India tweeted.

The United Airlines said the 5G rollout will affect an estimated 1.25 million United passengers, 15,000 flights and cargo service at more than 40 airports in the country. The 5G signals interfere with key safety equipments that pilots rely on to take off and land in inclement weather, it said.

"We won't compromise on safety. But, Governments in other countries have successfully designed policies to ensure the safe deployment of 5G technology and we're simply asking the US Government to do the same. Otherwise, the radio altimeters on certain aircraft, which provide information to other safety systems like autopilot, heads-up displays, terrain warning and pitch control will be compromised and will result in significant restrictions on 787s, 777s, 737s, and regional aircraft in major cities like Houston, Newark, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago.

"Unfortunately, this will result in not only hundreds of thousands of flight cancellations and disruptions for customers across the industry in 2022, but also the suspension of cargo flights into these locations, causing a negative ripple effect on an already fragile supply chain. We implore the Biden administration to act quickly and apply the same commonsense solutions here that have clearly worked so well around the world," the statement added.
