Airline CEOs warn the 5G interference with aircraft systems could be "catastrophic," making many flights impossible and grinding commerce to a halt."We're committed to reaching a solution around 5G deployment that maintains the highest level of safety while minimizing disruptions to passenger travel, cargo operations and our economic recovery," said White House press secretary Jen Psaki Tuesday. "We certainly understand what's at stake for both industries and we believe that with continued cooperation, we can chart a path forward."AT&T and Verizon insist their equipment will not interfere with aircraft electronics, and that the technology is being safely used in many other countries. However, the CEOs of 10 passenger and cargo airlines including American, Delta, United and Southwest say that 5G will be more disruptive than earlier thought because dozens of large airports that were to have buffer zones to prevent 5G interference with aircraft will still be subject to of flight restrictions announced last week by the FAA. "It is true that if there are hundreds or thousands of flights that are grounded, that means not just disruptions to passenger travel. That also means cargo operations, that means that goods aren't moving around as quickly and effectively as they need to in order to not have supply chain disruptions," Psaki said.The showdown between two industries and their rival regulators - the FAA and the FCC, which oversees radio spectrum - threatens to further disrupt the aviation industry, which has been hammered by the pandemic for nearly two years.===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
