Important Information for Existing Flightradar24 Mobile App Users

Our new and much improved iOS and Android flight tracker app is now available in the App Store and Play Store. With tons of new features and improvements, the new Flightradar24 flight tracker app is the best way to track flights on your mobile device. With this release we’re making some major changes to the app structure so we can continue to add great features and improve everyone’s flight tracking experience. If you’ve previously used any version of our mobile apps, see below for how you can start taking advantage of the new features in Flightradar24.

If you have previously purchased the Flightradar24 app

After 3 years of supporting two versions of Flightradar24, the old Pro and Premium app will stop working on March 30, 2020. The original Flightradar24 app launched in 2009 and was built on technologies that are being discontinued. As most users have moved to the new app and the technology running the old Pro and Premium app sunsets, we’ve decided the time is right to say goodbye to the old app. We encourage you to download our new app at fr24.com/apps to continue your Flightradar24 flight tracking experience after March 30, 2020.

While the existing app will no longer appear in the main App Store or Play Store, you may restore the app if you have already purchased it (e.g., if you buy a new phone). On iOS, open the App Store, tap Updates, then tap Purchased. On Android, ensure you are logged in to your Google account, open here, or visit the Play Store, then My apps and games, then tap Library).

If you have an existing subscription

If you currently have a subscription, download (iOS | Android) the new app and log in to begin taking advantage of the new features. Your subscription allows you access to features on the web and in the apps.
