Offering live flight information to customers is a logical next step for a growing company like EscapeWire

Flyte Systems, the leading provider of airport travel information displays and digital signage content for the hospitality industry, digital signage, convention centers and related businesses, announced it has entered into an agreement with EscapeWire Solutions, LLC of Buffalo, New York to integrate its real-time airline flight information software solution with EscapeWire's digital signage and free-to-guest television services. Launched in 2002 as a wireless network provider, EscapeWire has grown to become a one-stop shop for all information technology needs in the hospitality, education and other business sectors. With the integration of Flyte Systems' economical, subscription-based solution, EscapeWire further expands its comprehensive suite of services.

"Offering live flight information to customers is a logical next step for a growing company like EscapeWire," said Flyte Systems' President, Brian Reynolds. "Because they are focused on servicing their clients with today's most innovative solutions, Flyte's software is a natural, and affordable, fit that delivers needed, and appreciated, information to travelers."

Planning for Future Integration
According to EscapeWire's President, Chris Hart-Nova, the company initially plans to integrate Flyte's products into their digital signage offerings, and then quickly expand into the free-to-guest television services via FlyteChannel, Flyte's in-room solution for hospitality guests. Hart-Nova notes that integration possibilities exist throughout their service offerings and foresees rolling the Flyte product out in at least half of all the properties they currently service in First Quarter 2009.

"There are a lot of technology options in the hospitality industry, and properties need to offer the solutions that keep guests coming back. Delivering flight information via strategically located digital signage monitors, or through in-room televisions, will be important in helping properties distinguish themselves and increase repeat business," Hart-Nova said.

Real-time Flight Information
What sets Flyte Systems apart from PC-based applications is the ability to post accurate, real-time airline flight arrival and departure information, not FAA-regulated scheduled departure times that do not list delays caused by air traffic control, aircraft maintenance, crew availability and weather.

Flyte Systems offers a suite of products that serve the traveling public: FlyteBoard, FlytePass, FlyteChannel and FlyteTouch.

  •     FlyteBoard is a wall, floor or ceiling mounted high-definition, flat panel screen for lobbies, restaurants, bars and other public areas, displaying flight information for one or more airports.
  •     FlytePass combines FlyteTouch with free, secure boarding pass printing and can be provided stand alone or neatly packaged in an optional all wood kiosk or integrated metal kiosk, to match your décor.
  •     FlyteChannel permits guests to view live airport flight information conveniently and comfortably from their in-room television.
  •     FlyteTouch enables individual guests to search flight information using an interactive touch screen that displays real-time flight arrivals and departures for one or more airports.

Many hotel properties also use Flyte Systems' applications to increase revenue with innovative marketing approaches for distressed travelers. For tips on how to generate revenue by providing guests with Flyte Systems airline information, please log on to the Flyte Systems website at
