We activated nearly 100 new receivers in March, helping us track over 4.3 million flights. We increased our coverage area in places like Greenland, Brazil, India, and Somalia and added more MLAT coverage in the US, Australia, and Brazil as well.
In Greenland, we activated a new receiver near Ilulissat, which is adding coverage of transatlantic flights on the west coast.
In Brazil, new receivers are adding coverage in the northeast and central parts of the country, while new receivers on the east coast are helping with MLAT coverage. Two new receivers in Bolivia are now providing excellent coverage, as is our newest receiver in Ecuador.
In the United States, we activated two dozen new receivers, including one that is providing substantially more ground coverage in Atlanta. New receivers in Mexico are also boosting coverage, especially along the southwest coast.
In Somalia our newest receiver has expanded our coverage area again, helping track more flights through the area than ever before.
Two new receivers in Nepal and two additional receivers nearby in India are providing new coverage for flights, including some domestic flights in Nepal.
A handful of new receives in Australia and China are helping improve our MLAT coverage, enabling us to track even more flights that are not yet equipped with ADS-B transponders.

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.
Use Your Own Hardware
If you prefer to use your own hardware and have a Raspberry Pi you can now help us increase ADS-B and MLAT coverage as well. Please see our Raspberry Pi page for more information and to begin sharing data today.
