In May, we activated nearly 100 new Flightradar24 ADS-B receivers, helping us track over 4.9 million flights. Those receivers also helped us track the most flights in a single day so far this year with 182,790 flights on 26 May.

Two of the new receivers activated are helping with flights transiting the high north latitudes over the Atlantic Ocean and Canada. Installed in Svalbard and near Pond Inlet, Canada, these receivers are already helping track additional flights. Other important receivers include a new receiver in Kabul, Afghanistan; Pokhara, Nepal; and a cluster of receivers in Washington state. Those will help us better track all flights in the Pacific Northwest, but especially test flights operating in the area from the likes of Boeing and Mitsubishi.
