new receivers added this year

To close out the year, we activated about 100 new receivers helping us track 4,303,978 flights during the month of December. New receivers activated this month are filling important coverage gaps and adding MLAT coverage in areas where many flights are not yet equipped with ADS-B.

Clusters of new receivers in Mexico, Colombia, and Venezuela are helping expand our MLAT coverage there, as are new receivers in northern Turkey and along the coast of Brazil.

New receivers in southern Russia and northern China are helping cover flights between China and northern Europe. A new receiver in Tok, Alaska, is adding coverage of flights between Asia and North America. Another new receiver in French Polynesia continues to add to our coverage of transpacific flights.

In Africa, we added receivers in Botswana, Mauritania, Morocco, South Africa, and Zimbabwe. We continue to expand out MLAT coverage in South Africa.

Here’s the full map of all receivers activated during December (click to expand). We’ll have a map of all new Flightradar24 ADS-B receivers activated in 2016 in a blog post later this week.
