  • Flight times differ vs. FlightAware

    Hi,

    I have noticed that flightradar24 flight times are always shorter than those posted on FlightAware.

    Is it the case that flightradar24 times are 'runway to runway' and FlightAware times are 'gate to gate'?

    Cheers

    Flightradar24 mainly uses runway to runway as this is data we can verify with our network. Gate times are reported by airports and airlines and there are often incentives to report incorrect times to improve statistics. We want to be an independent source of independent data.

      Read this 'Flight Page' area for your question about Flightaware times.
      https://flightaware.com/about/faq#flightpage

      Go to any Commercial flight on FlightAware and go down the page where it says "Flight Data". click on that wheel icon.
