Flightradar24, the online platform that shows real-time commercial aircraft flight tracking information on a map, crashed on Thursday after it saw 10 to 20 times higher traffic following the Russian military operation on Ukraine and subsequent closure of the Ukranian airspace.


“Due to extremely heavy load, some users may experience slowness or temporary connection issues accessing Flightradar24. We're working on increasing available performance now,” Flightradar24 tweeted.

“We are still working hard on increasing the capacity, but the very big international interest generate 10-20 times higher traffic than normally, which is hard to handle.”
