Foursquare has announced the first location to surpass one million check-ins is Atlanta’s International Airport:

You guys! We just hit a huge milestone! Today, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport became the first location on Foursquare to pass 1,000,000 check-ins.

ATL is one of the busiest airports in the world and Foursquare users have left over 2000 tips for their fellow travellers. Some other interesting stats from ATL:

  • 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 of sculptures from Zimbabwe while waiting for their flight.

Foursquare is one of the largest social networks and now has over 30 million members that have checked in over 3 billion times. ATL (“where the playas play”) has made history with over 1 million check-ins.

Back in December, another airport become a popular shared destination on the social network Instagram. Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) in Bangkok, Thailand, had topped over 100,000 pictures posted in 2012.
