Multi-Million Dollar Hilton Arlington Renovation Adds Glance-And-Go Airport Flight Information as Part of ‘Accessible Technology’ Upgrades for Travelers

Hilton Arlington FlyteBoard

It is a great tool to serve guests at our hotel. Guests often extend their stay if they see their flight is cancelled. If they see their flight is delayed, guests can wait out the problem in our restaurant and bar.

Flyte Systems announced that the Hilton Arlington in Texas placed two FlyteBoard displays in its new lobby as part of its multi-million dollar renovation. The transformed full-service Hilton now shows real-time arrivals and departures for nearby Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport that provide guests accessible technology and convenience. The Hilton Arlington is owned and operated by Interstate Hotels & Resorts.

Flyte Systems is the leading provider of cost effective airport travel information displays and digital signage content for the hospitality industry, digital signage, convention centers and related businesses.

FlyteBoard saves guests and staff time
Hilton Arlington’s General Manager James Shandor said, “The two new FlyteBoards in our lobby save guests and our staff time. Guests can simply look at the FlyteBoard for their flights. Plus, FlyteBoard also gives guests their flight’s terminal location. This is a life saver for travelers going to DFW since American Airlines uses four terminals. The display is easy to understand and a great convenience because guests recognize it as exactly what airports use around the world.” Hilton Arlington recently completed a total property renovation that included FlyteBoards as part of their ‘accessible technology’ guest innovation package.

“Flyte Systems displays are quick to install with an internet connection and we have had no downtime,” said Shandor. “We looked at other systems, but Flyte Systems was best suited to our needs. It is a great tool to serve guests at our hotel. Guests often extend their stay if they see their flight is cancelled. If they see their flight is delayed, guests can wait out the problem in our restaurant and bar.”
