In July, we activated 100 new Flightradar24 ADS-B receivers and hundreds more home-built receivers. These new receivers helped us track a record 5.3 million flights, including a new single-day record of 189,168.
Our remote northern coverage was enhanced this month with two new receivers in Greenland, including one near Qaanaaq, and a third in Inuvik, Canada. We also activated our third receiver on the island of St. Helena in the South Atlantic Ocean.
New receivers elsewhere, like the central United States, China, Brazil, and Japan are helping increase MLAT coverage. New receivers throughout Europe are lowering the altitude at which we maintain MLAT coverage, allowing us to track even more flights.
Here’s the full map of all receivers activated during July (click to expand).
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.
