Protest held at Hyderabad airport after Air India flight cancellation

They were annoyed as no official explained to them the reason for the cancellation of the flight.

The Hyderabad-Delhi-Chicago flight was canceled due to the fear that a 5G rollout by AT&T Inc and Verizon Communications Inc near the American airports would interfere with airwaves.

On its Twitter account, Air India has informed that AI101/102 DEL/JFK/DEL, AI173/174 DEL/SFO/DEL, AI127/126 DEL/ORD/DEL, and AI191/144 BOM/EWR/BOM will not operate on January 19, 2022. “Deployment of the 5G communications in the USA” has been cited as the reason for the decision.

The next direct flight from Hyderabad airport has been scheduled for Friday. However, there is no clarity about the flight.

Apart from Air India, nine other international airlines have canceled flights to the US amid conflicting reports on what new 5G cell phone services can do to critical airplane technologies.

Emirates, All Nippon Airways, Japan Airlines, Lufthansa, and British Airways have announced changes to some of their flights.
