Flight Tracker Visualizes June 30 as one of the Busiest Days ever in Air Travel
The best live flight radar app I have ever used – Flight Radar 24.
The skies look a lot more crowded today than they did a century ago.
At any given moment, there are 9700 airplanes traveling through the air on average. Saturday, June 30 was an especially busy day for air travelers: Flightradar24 recorded 202,157 flights, the most the flight-tracking app has ever documented in a single day.
Since 2006, people have used Flightradar24 to see visualizations of aircraft making trips around the world.
Each tiny yellow plane depicted on their map uses data from airlines and airports, and users can click the icons to learn the route, model, speed, altitude, and departure and arrival time of each craft.
Flightradar24 is a Swedish internet-based service that shows real-time commercial aircraft flight information on a map. It includes flight tracks, origins and destinations, flight numbers, aircraft types, positions, altitudes, headings and speeds.
