When we purchased our Four Points by Sheraton at Boston Logan I wanted to give our guests the same convenience of knowing their flight status before they left the hotel.

Flyte Systems announced that Four Points by Sheraton Boston Logan hotel installed its FlyteBoard airline flight information screen for guest convenience. More than 80 percent of the guests staying at the Four Points by Sheraton Boston Logan Airport hotel travel through nearby Logan International Airport. General Manager, Michael Buddemeyer wanted to provide his traveling guests with an amenity they would value. “I previously opened a Hilton Garden Inn airport property that had a flight information display called FlyteBoard. It was a great amenity. When we purchased our Four Points by Sheraton at Boston Logan I wanted to give our guests the same convenience of knowing their flight status before they left the hotel.”

The FlyteBoard digital flight information display shows real-time arrivals, departures and gate information for one or more airports. It is a cost effective subscription service. Many properties also add Doppler Radar Weather to FlyteBoard for guest convenience. FlyteBoard may also display property promotion graphics and other revenue generating information.
