new receivers added this year

We began the year with some exciting new receiver installations. Those, and the over 100 other new receivers activated in January, helped us tracked over 4.3 million flights in the first month of the year.

During January, we activated three new receivers in Somalia, adding coverage of flights over Somalia, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Yemen, and the Gulf of Aden. These three receivers each have well-elevated positions, enabling them to capture traffic with excellent range.

Elsewhere in Africa, we activated new receivers in Malawi, Morocco, São Tomé and Príncipe, South Africa, Tunisia, and Uganda.

We also activated a new receiver on the west coast of Greenland which has helped add coverage there. This receiver and two others activated in eastern Canada are helping cover transatlantic flights.

In Brazil, we added over a dozen new receivers, enhancing our coverage area and adding better MLAT coverage to areas in the southeast. New receivers in Argentina, Colombia, Uruguay, and Venezuela are helping fill small coverage gaps. In February we will activate numerous receivers in Chile, however, we are still actively looking for receiver hosts there. If you or someone you know is interested in hosting a Flightradar24 receiver, please let us know.

Here’s the full map of all receivers activated during January (click to expand).
