The “Departed” status used by airlines and airports usually means the moment when the gate is closed but on Flightradar24 we're tracking transponders so the tracking starts when the transponder is turned on and within our coverage. This usually happens 5 to 30 minutes after the gate is closed.
The airport/airline says the flight has departed, why can't I find it on Flightradar24? Print
