  • Norwegian Air Shuttle - Missing tracked flights?

    Hey guys,

    I would like to first let you know I appreciate the work you do and I hope one day I will join you as a developer, since I am a developer myself.

    I come to you with a strange thing I realised recently. I have 2 upcoming Norwegian Air Shuttle flights, and as I always do, I track them a couple of days before the flight to see more info about the planes used, the paths used, etc.

    However, none of the 2 flights are tracked by FR24 and it seems very uncommon since the planes are new (with up to date transponders) and a lot of other Norwegian flights are tracked.

    Flights I am talking about: DY3320 (CPH - RIX), DY3540 (CPH - AMS). Other competitor websites show tracking info about them, but not FR24. Why would that be?

    Thanks a lot for reading and I'm looking forward for a reply.

    There is no flight with DY3320 or DY3540 flight number



    Correct flight number is D83320 - https://www.flightradar24.com/data/flights/d83320

      Hey Mike,

      Thanks for the prompt answer.

      What are the numbers that my google flight gives me then? Whenever I have an upcoming flight, I just check my flights on google and it gives me the right flight number, like this:

      Which would resemble as SK1782

      Whereas the 2 norwegian flights look like this:

          Try D83320 and D83540. Most of the flights are operated by IBK not NAX.

                It's not as straight forward as that, Mike. They mix and match a lot using each other's aircraft. The callsigns aren't always the same either. Sometimes they'll use the ticket flight number as callsign rather than the usual alpha-numerical one.
