U.S. airlines said the deployment of the new 5G services had little impact on air travel, as the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration said it had issued new permits to allow landings linked to bad weather and poor visibility.

Management said an increase in permits for Boeing and Airbus flights would allow 62 percent of U.S. commercial flights to land at certain airports due to bad weather, up from 45 percent earlier.

Numerous global airlines have canceled flights to the United States or changed the type of aircraft used on those flights due to fears that the 5G network deployment, which began on Wednesday, could interfere with strong signals issued by the airline.

AT agreed. AT&T and Verizon on Tuesday evening postponed the launch of their new 5G C-band service to some new wireless communication towers near major airports.

As of Wednesday morning, the Federal Aviation Administration has approved the landing of aircraft using five types of altimeters in bad weather.

American Airlines said it had experienced “minor operational impact” as a result of the new 5G service, including some delays and four cancellations.

United Airlines said it expects “some disruption at some airports”.

Aviation management warned that “flights may be affected at some airports” even though permission has been granted.
