The flight data website published information about the record. Never before have so many planes been in the air at the same time.

Flightradar24 is the most popular real-time flight tracking device. The Swedish website displays information about cruises and the machines used for them. It also shows airport data, flight numbers, aircraft types, positions, altitudes, courses and speeds of machines in the air. Its services are used by millions of users interested in aviation.

The website has its own social media accounts, where it shares interesting facts about the industry. It shows the most interesting flights, cruises performed by famous people, as well as unusual routes or “traffic jams” in the sky. On June 7, the brand published information about the record. There have never been so many planes in the sky at one time.

“Congested” sky. The record was broken

Flightradar24 is the world's largest ADS-B network with over 40,000 connected receivers. Over 200,000 flights and over 4 million users are monitored daily. Its resources are also used by major airlines and companies such as Airbus, Boeing and Embraer.

A few days ago, the brand's representatives shared a photo on the X website that shows a record-breaking “congested” sky. It turns out that on June 7, there were more planes in the air than ever before.

“We are often asked what is the highest number of flights we have monitored at the same time. This afternoon, at approximately 14:30 UTC, we tracked over 23,000 aircraft for the first time,” they wrote.

And indeed, at that moment there were as many as 23,158 planes in the sky. Interestingly, on that day, June 7, it was one step away from breaking the recent May record. A total of 262,922 flights were handled on May 10, and 262,588 on June 7.
