Foursquare check-ins reach 1 million at Atlanta Int’l Airport

Foursquare has long been the go-to app for checking-in at places and sharing tips on restaurants and other attractions, so it's no surprise that one location in particular has reached a whopping 1 million check-ins on Foursquare. That location is Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, which is known as one of the busiest airports in the world.

The heat map that Foursquare provided shows where all of the 1 million check-ins have occurred, and as you can see, many of them were sent from the runway, proving that no one actually pays attention to flight attendants who tell you to keep your phone off until the plane has reached the gate -- no one.

On top of the 1 million check-ins, the Atlanta Airport also has over 2,000 tips under its name, providing travelers with essential information for when they're stuck at the airport during a layover. Foursquare also discovered that, on average, Monday is the airport’s busiest day for travel, and Terminal B sees the most traffic, according to check-in data.

Foursquare also notes that the One Flew South restaurant in the Atlanta Airport has more check-ins more than any other in-airport restaurant, and it also has the highest rating as well. Plus, the permanent collection of sculptures from Zimbabwe inside the airport also seem to be a big hit with travelers looking to kill time.
