Guests get reliable glance-and-go travel information without apps
“Guest love the travel convenience FlyteBoard provides. They trust their travel plans while they are on property because of the FlyteBoard’s familiar arrival and departure display,” said Tony Schatz, general manager of Hyatt Place Flushing/LaGuardia Airport Hotel. “Our guests can easily see real-time airline flight information for our three airports without using a third-party app. Plus, the three-airport capability is valuable since most of our guests travel by air.” Flyte Systems is the only full service flight information display solution that provides real-time departure information.

Schatz noted that the property’s parent company recommended the FlyteBoard implementation for his property. “Our biggest demand generator is LaGuardia Airport for our business travelers. When group meeting planners do site visits they are impressed we provide this service.”

With its opening on May 29, 2014, the property became the first Hyatt-branded hotel in Queens, New York. “Hyatt Place Flushing/LaGuardia Airport is centrally located in the heart of one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in New York City, and we’re looking forward to creating a positive experience for each and every guest that walks through our doors,” said Schatz.
