In July, we tracked 5.9 million flights, our busiest month ever. We also set a single day record of 209,752 flights. During the month, we activated dozens of Flightradar24-supplied receivers in remote locations around the world. These new receivers—and the tens of thousands of others already a part of the Flightradar24 network—helped us get there.
In Nepal, eight new receivers came online. New receivers at opposite ends of North America are helping with transoceanic coverage and a new receiver in Punta Arenas, Chile is boosting coverage at the southern end of South America. MLAT coverage in the United States improved with a complement of receivers being added west of the Mississippi River. New receivers in Chad and Oman are also providing new coverage.

If you’d you like more information about our application process, you can read more about it in our blog post.
