Aircraft maker Boeing, like Airbus, warns of risks to aircraft

The top ten US airlines have warned that the imminent rollout of 5G mobile internet services will cause “significant interference” to flights.

According to them, the start of 5G services by Verizon and AT&T, planned for Wednesday, the 19th, would lead to an “absolutely avoidable economic disaster.”

Companies fear that C-band 5G signals will disrupt aircraft navigation systems, especially those used in bad weather. This warning came in a letter to the US aviation authorities.

In it, the chief executives of American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and United Airlines, among others, said: “Immediate intervention is necessary to avoid significant operational disruption to flight passengers, carriers, the supply chain and the delivery of necessary medical supplies,” including vaccine distribution.
