U.S. Travel Association Calls for Delay of 5G Implementation

The U.S. Travel Association is calling on the United States government to delay the implementation of 5G around airports in the country.

In a statement published Tuesday, president and CEO Roger Dow said that the U.S. Travel Association is urgently calling on the U.S. government and mobile wireless carriers to delay the introduction of 5G wireless around affected airports until critical operational concerns can be resolved.”

Airlines have warned the new C-Band 5G service could render a significant number of widebody aircraft unusable.

“The implementation of 5G around affected airports threatens to disrupt domestic and international air travel, delay thousands of passengers, and cause unnecessary economic harm to the nation and the entire travel industry – not just airlines,” Dow said in the statement.

“Now is not the time to take such significant risks. We strongly urge the U.S. government and mobile wireless carriers to act immediately to delay the implementation of 5G around affected airports identified by the FAA,” he added.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has warned that potential interference could affect sensitive airplane instruments such as altimeters. That would significantly hamper low-visibility operations.
