Chicago O’Hare Ranked Among Facebook’s Most Social

December 18, 2011

facebook ranks ohare as third most social airportChicago’s O’Hare International Airport is the world’s third most busy airport. According to Wikipedia, 66,665,390 passengers passed through the airport in 2010. What is really interesting is how social these travelers are! The airport was just ranked by Facebook as the third most social airport in the world.

Facebook recently released a list of the 25 most social airports. The list was compiled based on check ins at airports on Facebook and through third-party location services integrated with the Facebook Places API between August 2010 and November 2011.

In addition to being named to the most social list, O’Hare has a number of other honors and accolades including being voted the “Best Airport in North America” for 10 years by two separate sources: Readers of the U.S. Edition of Business Traveler Magazine (1998–2003) and Global Traveler Magazine (2004–2007). O’Hare also accounts for over a sixth of the nation’s total flight cancellations (according to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics). My guess is this is caused by all the snow!

Here’s the full list of most social airports:

  1. Los Angeles International Airport
  2. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport
  3. Chicago O’Hare International Airport
  4. San Francisco International Airport
  5. Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport
