Flightradar24 Update

Greetings fellow avgeeks, one of our favorite tools, Flightradar24, has updated their mobile platform app.

The most important part is that it’s FREE and comes with a lot more features. Another important feature to note is that they’ve linked they’re mobile in-app purchases to the web version by using your account to sign-in across the platforms.

I’ve included the download links for both platforms below.

I’ve copy-pasted their FAQ section of the new app here.

FAQs About the New App
We’ve compiled a few frequently asked questions about the new app and how you can take advantage of all the new features in the new app and on Flightradar24.com. If you have a question not addressed in the FAQ, get in touch with us and we’ll be happy to help.

Can I keep using my Premium app?
Yes, but we recommend downloading and installing our new app, available for iOS and Android. With the new app you will get more information about each flight and more features. After downloading, just log in to begin enjoying the features available with your subscription.

Can I keep using my Free app?
Please update your existing free app to get the new app with many new features and much more flight data.

Can I keep using my Pro app?
Yes, you may continue using the Pro app and any previous in-app purchases, but the Pro app will no longer be updated. Please download the new app to take advantage of additional flight data and new features. The new app is available for free, but you can upgrade for even more features in the app and on the web. We offer a free trial for all of our Flightradar24 subscriptions, perfect for trying out the features to see which are right for you.

Can I have the old Pro app and the new app installed at the same time?

If I download the new app, will it overwrite my Pro app?
No, the Pro app and the new app are separate and can be installed and used in parallel. The new app was previously the free app.

Can I transfer my alerts or filters from Pro app to the new app?
Because the new app is a separate app, it is not possible to transfer alerts or other settings.

Can I transfer the in-app-purchases from the Pro app to the new app?
It is not possible to transfer in-app purchases, but you may continue to use those purchases in the Pro app. We recommend downloading the new app to get even more flight data and all of our new features. We offer a free trial for all of our Flightradar24 subscriptions, perfect for trying out the features to see which are right for you. If you have any questions about your existing Pro app, get in touch with us.

I have web subscription, do I need another subscription to use the app?
No, your Flightradar24 subscription is available on the web and in the mobile app. Just log in on the device you’d like to use. See all of the features available as part of your subscription.

If I buy a subscription in the new app, can I use it on web as well?
Absolutely, the new app and web are sharing the same subscription plans. See all of the features available as part of your subscription.

Is it possible to get the features in the new app with just a one-time payment?
The new app offers a lot of additional features for free and even more features are available with a Flightradar24 subscription. Our Silver subscription is just USD 9.99 per year and offers no ads and other additional features like more labels and historical data. All subscriptions and their features can be used in our mobile app and on the web at Flightradar24.com. We offer a free trial for all of our Flightradar24 subscriptions, perfect for trying out the features to see which are right for you.

I can’t find the Pro app in the store?
The Pro app is no longer available for download. If you have previously purchased the Pro app and would like to restore it to your device, instructions are available here.

Why did you make this change?
The Flightradar24 mobile experience was 3 separate apps, which was confusing for many of our users. We decided to merge features from our 3 apps into one and add most of the features from the web to make just one app with subscription plans shared between Android, iOS and web.

Why did you update the free app and not the Pro app?
The free app had many more users, so by updating the free app to the new app we added new features to the app for free, enabled subscribers to take advantage of features across platforms, and also made it possible for our Pro users to keep using their existing app alongside the new app.

I honestly am on the fence with this update. I don’t really want to pay $50 dollars a year for iAPS I have already bought in the previous version of the app. But then again, it’s really useful and well put together.


I’ll keep the previous version installed, but also download this.

Thanks for posting!


I wish they could give us some kind of compensation for the people who paid $5 for the pro version.


Looks great with the update


The new app looks amazing :D

the only thing that annoys me is that I spent my money on add ons of the old app…


This is way better than the old one


The update is nice, and I enjoy using the various features.

I haven’t updated yet. I’m a little apprehensive. Looks nice, though!

Yeah, mine updated last week. It is great, I felt like I was missing out on all those awesome paid features!

I really don’t like this, I paid 4.99 +2.99 on the pro app for the add-ons. Now the free app has more features…


Did you pay for the yearly plan? I really hate this considering how i spent over $10 including the purchase of the paid app. But i guess its only 10 bucks a year

I ended up getting the silver subscription and i emailed FR24 and they said they would give me 2 free months of gold :) (still waiting for the reply, had to send the email for them to put it on).

This has to be the most incredible flight app I have ever received. I just downloaded the new updated free version and was instantly amazed!!
I can pan around and view aircraft miles away without even looking at the map. I have to say I am thouroughly impressed and win over by how much they offer for free. I can live happily without paying s single cent and still enjoy every moment of this app.
To anyone who hasn’t gotten it yet or updated it…DO IT!

Im happy i pay for pro subscription on desktop version now i get this :)

Looks great! I will download it soon:-)
