Mobile Users Prove Big Fans of Fandango in May

Fandango announced Tuesday that it has reached a new company milestone.

As it turns out, Fandango delivered its best-ever May numbers for both traffic and ticket sales in the organization’s 12-year history.

The company reported a 47 % surge in year-over-year ticket sales, a 29% percent year-over-year increase in monthly visitors (totaling 34 million in May 2012, the highest monthly unique visitors in company history), and its top monthly mobile percentage (28%) of total tickets sold.

In other words, during May, more than one in four Fandango regulars checked out the site via their mobile device.

“Fandango’s record-setting May is yet another signal of the incredible momentum behind Fandango right now, said Executive Vice President and General Manager Rick Butler. “Our enormous network of theater screens and box office share, combined with our innovative mobile and social products as well as our extensive coverage of movie news and film reviews, has made Fandango an essential destination for moviegoers everywhere.”
