Coalition organizes against US inflight cell-phone ban
November 01, 2008


The Inflight Passenger Communications Coalition, created in September 2008 to fight a pending US ban on inflight cellphone voice calls, has launched a website: www.passengercommunications.com. The site is aimed at educating the traveling public about the safety of inflight cellphone use for voice and data service. The coalition was formed by AeroMobile, OnAir, and other pro-voice stakeholders from the IFE/communications industry in response to the HANG UP Act (Halting Airplane Noise to Give Us Peace Act), H.R. 5788 in the US House of Representatives.

H.R. 5788 would prohibit cell-phone voice calls on interstate and intrastate flights over the US by all US and non-US air carriers.
