Europe has successfully implemented 5G without causing any disruption to aviation. Here’s how it works:
The aviation industry is concerned that 5G technology would interfere with critical onboard instruments, thus major international airlines are canceling flights to the United States.
But in Europe, where the latest generation of high-speed mobile networks is being pushed out without a hitch, it’s business as usual.
The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) told CNN Business on Wednesday that “the technical data received from EU manufacturers present no conclusive evidence for imminent safety issues at this time.”
“At this time, EASA is not aware of any in-service accidents caused by 5G interference,” said the European Aviation Safety Agency, which governs civil aviation in 31 nations.
In the United Kingdom, the Civil Aviation Authority issued a safety advisory on Tuesday, stating that “there have been no documented instances of 5G interference resulting in aircraft system malfunction or unusual behavior.”
