“Checking-in” with social media enthusiasts is the Virgin America San Francisco Terminal, an airport that will surely grab attention from jet-setting digital natives.

Virgin America is leveraging the Foursquare and Facebook platforms at its new international terminal to keep social networking travelers connected in the air and to reward the frequent fliers. Aside from the usual Arrival/ Departure screens are also leaderboard check-in screens too, to display who’s checked in at the airport. There is also a Facebook page and Twitter feed streamed live on the screen. The airline will keep track of points and badges that are earned by these location-based users and award them with t-shirts and flight vouchers, straight from the Virgin America flight crew themselves.

The Virgin America San Francisco Terminal definitely takes flight in elevating a social media flying experience for digital globetrotters.
