To offer our guests an exceptional stay, we partnered with Flyte Systems to integrate their real-time flight information and departure displays for both airports with our existing property travel boards and NYC-specific content.

The LaGuardia Plaza Hotel partnered with Flyte Systems to launch a new Travel-Event-Amenity display that provides guests with flight information, combined with property events, promotions, and area activity announcements. Flyte Systems supplies online Event Portal content that alternates airline departures for LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy International Airports with time-sensitive property-configurable content and local attractions to keep on-the-go travelers informed.

Flyte Systems is the leading provider of cost effective airport travel information displays and digital signage content for the hospitality, corporate training centers, digital signage, convention center industries and related businesses.

“Keeping our guests connected lies at the heart of everything we do – which is why our hotel is ideal for millennial travelers who fly to New York at either LaGuardia or JFK International Airports. To offer our guests an exceptional stay, we partnered with Flyte Systems to integrate their real-time flight information and departure displays for both airports with our existing property travel boards and NYC-specific content,” said Nicole L. Ream, Regional Director of Sales and Marketing for Synergy Hospitality, Inc., the property’s management company, which has one other property that uses Flyte Systems. “We recently re-launched our brand to emphasize our hotel’s ability to connect guests with their destination and to the boroughs of NYC and everything they have to offer. Partnering with Flyte Systems will allow us to deliver on our promise of a wonderful hotel experience with total connectivity."

Flyte Systems developed an Event Portal platform for LaGuardia Plaza that enabled the property to display time-specific property activities, meetings with wayfinding, and promotions that automatically update when appropriate. “We wanted to include airport departure information on our property display, and Flyte Systems had a great reputation,” said Ream. “They helped us create our event board so we can enter many coming property events and NYC activities anytime. Future events are held in a secure database until they are needed. The system displays and removes them based on the dates we specify. This saves us time and guests benefit from current information; plus guests can see flight departures for both airports.”

“The LaGuardia Plaza Hotel delivers exactly what active millennial travelers want, which is information in real-time,” said Scott Triphahn, Flyte Systems VP. “In one place, the property combines flight information for both NYC airports, property events and wayfinding, cool promotions, and comprehensive information on the kinds of local activities people come to New York to experience. Today’s travelers don’t like to wait, so when things happen Flyte Systems and LaGuardia Plaza Hotel are there to keep millennials informed, aware of their options.
