In March, we activated over 100 new Flightradar24-supplied ADS-B receivers and hundreds more home-built receivers joined the Flightradar24 network. Thanks to these new receivers and tens of thousands of others around the world, we tracked 4.8 million flights in March.
In March, we activated another 7 receivers in Brazil, after activating that many last month as well. Multiple receivers in Russia, Australia, and Japan are also supplying great coverage. A handful of receivers activated in Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Afghanistan are expanding our coverage area in that region.
In Africa, we activated receivers in Namibia, South African, Nigeria, Gambia, and Central African Republic.
We also activated an additional receiver on Bear Island in the western Barents Sea.
