Emirates has suspended flights to 9 US airports

Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – Amid concerns raised by airlines from operating fifth-generation (5G) networks near airports, Emirates Airlines has announced it will suspend flights to nine major US destinations.

The implementation of the Emirates decision will be tentatively effective from Wednesday, January 19, until further notice.

Airports that have announced reductions in Emirates flights are: SFO), Seattle (SEA) “.

Emirates will continue its flights to New York (John F. Kennedy Airport), Los Angeles Airport and Washington DC.

Emirates did not specify a date for the resumption of these suspended flights, but directly blamed the use of 5G network services that could affect operations at some airports.

Verizon and AT&T Communications had already announced on Tuesday that they were postponing the launch of new services near airports.

In a letter to Tuesday, CEOs of 10 airlines asked US President Joe Biden’s management to postpone the already delayed operation.

Due to possible interference with the radar altimeters used by pilots to land at low visibility levels, airlines estimate about 1,000 interruptions per day for their flights.
