IATA welcomed the selections by ATT and Verizon to hold off the rollout of C-band 5G close to airports and thanks the Biden Administration for their steady efforts to assure that passenger and cargo operations are not disrupted. But the hold off is only a temporary resolution. It nevertheless is essential for all stakeholders and regulators, aviation and telecommunication alike, to continue sharing essential complex information and operating jointly to achieve a productive implementation approach that will ensure C-band 5G systems can properly co-exist with the aviation field. Any mitigation actions to assure harmless traveling need to be operationally practical. To that conclusion, IATA urges the US Federal Communications Fee (FCC) to figure out the requirements and tips of the aviation community in deploying C-band 5G. We also urge the US Federal Aviation Administration to accelerate its engagement with the FCC and to go on operating with the sector and plane makers to expedite the enhancement of safe Substitute Usually means of Compliance (AMOC) answers to minimize any 5G-linked disruptions.
