FlytePad enables guest service staff to provide flight information from any location, such as an airport shuttle (3G version), lobby location or elsewhere on property. Users can instantly sort FlytePad's information by any field, such as destination city, airline or time.

Mobile-ready data for highly mobile users
Russell John, GM at the Holiday Inn and Suites Rosemont, saw potential for FlytePad at properties whose shuttle may have more than just a few minutes' drive to the airport. "With FlytePad 3G, the shuttle driver can provide last minute gate changes and flight status just as the travelers leave the shuttle."

Inspiring confidence, affordable convenience
"The FlytePad sets a new standard in airline information delivery for travelers," says Scott Triphahn, vice president of Flyte Systems. "Hotels can now provide accurate, up-to-the-minute airline information to guests while also maximizing their staff's mobility and productivity. Today's traveler is savvy, deadline-oriented, and accustomed to instant information. The FlytePad is a convenient, portable way for hotels to stay ahead of the curve and give their guests the convenience and confidence they desire."

Real-time flight information in your hand
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 including FlyteBoard, FlytePass, FlyteChannel and FlyteTouch.

Many hotel properties also use Flyte Systems' applications to increase revenue with innovative marketing approaches for distressed travelers.
