Air India has tweeted that with the introduction of 5G internet service in the US, it will no longer operate Indo-US airlines. These Air India flights include Delhi-New York, New York-Delhi, Delhi-Chicago, Chicago-Delhi, Delhi-San Francisco, San Francisco-Delhi, Delhi-Newark and Newark-Delhi. Meanwhile, according to the latest information, the Boeing Company has given permission to the Boeing 777 aircraft saying that there is no danger to the transportation in America. Air India said the first Air India flight to the United States took off this morning.
Indian Air Transport Regulatory Authority (DGCA) chief Arun Kumar said that the US is in talks with airlines to overcome the situation arising out of 5G internet services. Telecom companies AT&T and Verizon Communications have said work on launching new wireless services near airports will be postponed.
The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has approved a number of flights with 5G signal to fly over airports. But the Boeing 777 is not on the list. In the United States, the issue has sparked disputes between the FAA and airlines, the Federal Communications Commission, and telecommunications companies. The effect of 5G on an aircraft’s radio altimeter can cause engine and braking systems to stall. The FAA recently said it could cause problems for planes on the runway.
