Domestic aviation recovery rocked by Melbourne's repeat outbreak
2019 was a record year for Flightradar24 and flight tracking. We tracked more flights than ever before and added thousands of new ADS-B receivers to the Flightradar24 network.
2019 flight tracking by the numbers
In 2019, we tracked 68,948,849 total flights, a new record. Averaging 188,901 flights per day, that is a 10% increase over 2018. Our busiest single day was 25 July when we tracked 230,409 flights. On 25 December—as is customary— we tracked the fewest flights with 120,212.
As the aviation industry continues to grow and as more aircraft are equipped with ADS-B transponders, we expect the number of flights tracked per day to continue to grow.
2019’s most tracked flight
The first of three Qantas Project Sunrise test flights was our most tracked flight of the year with nearly 800,000 people tracking at least a portion of the live flight.
2019 new receivers by the numbers
In 2019 we activated nearly 700 Flightradar24-supplied ADS-B receivers around the world and over two thousand data sharers began contributing ADS-B data to the Flightradar24 network with receivers they built themselves.
In the map below, we’ve marked the locations of all of the Flightradar24-supplied receivers activated in 2019.
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 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
Have a Raspberry Pi sitting around collecting dust or looking to get started with tracking flights with a quick project? Build your own receiver to help us increase ADS-B and MLAT coverage in your area. Our simple guide walks you through the steps from getting the parts you need to setting up your receiver.
