In April, we activated nearly 100 receivers, adding coverage in some helpful locations. A new receiver in Eureka, Canada is providing excellent coverage of polar flights and our transpacific coverage got a boost from a new receiver in far eastern Russia. These receivers and the tens of thousands of others that make up the Flightradar24 network helped us track over 5.1 million flights and set a new single day record of 191,583 flights!

Help Add ADS-B Coverage
We are always looking for new receiver hosts. Especially if you or someone you know lives in a remote location, please apply to host a receiver. All of our receiver hosts get a free Flightradar24 Business Subscription, which can be used on the web or within our new mobile app. If you’re interested, please apply today. If you’d you like more information about our application process, you can read more about it in our blog post.
