5G wireless rollout plan will impact 1.25M passengers, 15k flights annually: United Airlines

In a statement late on Monday, United Airlines said the current U.S. 5G wireless rollout plan is likely to negatively impact an estimated 1.25 million United passengers and at least 15,000 flights annually.

United Airlines urged the Biden Administration to take swift action.

U.S. airlines have warned 5G interference could compromise key safety systems and result in suspended passenger and cargo flights. They have demanded that the 5G deployments that are set to be installed in  a few US airports on Wednesday be delayed.

The current rules “will result in significant restrictions on 787s, 777s, 737s and regional aircraft in major cities like Houston, Newark, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago,” said United.
