“Welcome to preview the new version of Flightradar24. We plan to release this as official version in about 2-3 weeks. The biggest news is that you can click on airports to get live arrival / departure boards. Other improvements are better search and playback. There are still some fixes left.

Please notice that the airport data is NOT official data, but is based on our route data and the speed/destination of the aircraft.”
