An Immediate ROI
The recent installations across the US from Baltimore to Los Angeles confirm the value of Flyte Systems' low-risk, cost effective subscription service that installs quickly and easily and delivers immediate benefits to guests and operators. "Customers tell us their guests and corporate meeting planners specifically look for our products when selecting a property because they help avoid lengthy and often unnecessary stays in the airport caused by airline delays and cancellations," said Reynolds. "It's rare to find a product that delivers an ROI so quickly."

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 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 dïr.
  •     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.
