Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport today became the first Foursquare venue to reach one million check-ins.
Given that airports are one of Foursquare’s most popular categories and Atlanta is the busiest of the bunch, it makes sense that it would be the first to reach the milestone. It long ago surpassed San Francisco International Airport, which became the first venue to top 100,000 check-ins on September 5, 2010 (it currently stands at 896,000 check-ins).
Foursquare took the opportunity to share some interesting tidbits about ATL gleaned from their check-in data:
- According to Foursquare, Monday is the airport’s biggest day for travel, and Terminal B sees the most traffic, on average.
- Frequent ATL fliers love dining at One Flew South more than any other in-airport restaurant (it also has the highest rating!).
- Those looking to kill time tend to walk by the permanent collection ofsculptures from Zimbabwe while waiting for their flight.
Congratulations to Atlanta on being the first location to reach a million check-ins. Enjoy your reign, because it won’t be long before other venues join the club.
