The new Flyte Systems URL enables our front office staff to use their mobile phone or tablet to see exactly when our airline crews’ flights land to be at the terminal curbside to pick them up on time.

Flyte Systems announced it added custom airline arrival information to its existing travel services at Holiday Inn Washington Dulles International Airport. The new service is a URL accessible on mobile or desktop devices that lets property staff see real-time arrivals for a major air carrier the property serves. The arrival updates will enable the property’s shuttle team to pick up airline crews minutes after their flight lands and drive them to the hotel quickly for their layover.

The 297-room Holiday Inn Washington Dulles provides travelers with large comfortable rooms, complimentary Wi-Fi and efficient work desks in each room. The property has renovated most of its guest rooms as part of a $7.2M renovation to add additional amenities and guest services.

“We have provided a Flyte Systems FlyteBoard airline departure display in our lobby for several years and our guests tell us it helps their peace of mind,” Janis said. “When guests are confident of their flight’s departure time, they can stay on property and have a beverage or meal in comfortable surroundings. It is a valuable travel service.”
