Flyte Systems, the leading provider of airport travel information displays and digital signage content for the hospitality industry, digital signage, convention centers and related businesses, announced the Doubletree Hotel San Francisco Airport installed its FlyteBoard and FlytePass travel service solutions.

FlytePass combines an attractive touch screen flight information kiosk with secure boarding pass printing.
Real-time flight information is an essential service for travelers
“The FlyteBoard and FlytePass systems are essential guest service additions for travelers at our busy airport property,” said Ahmed Mahrous, general manager of the Doubletree Hotel San Francisco Airport (SFO). “We cater to guests who travel by air, various airline crews, and distressed airline passengers. Flyte Systems’ real-time airline information is a service valued by guests because it allows them to make better travel decisions based on accurate SFO flight information.”
Flyte Systems is the only full service flight information display solution that provides real-time airline flight information. The Doubletree Hotel San Francisco Airport is a 388-room property 10 minutes south of San Francisco International Airport.
“Guests rely on our property’s boarding pass printing to simplify their travel plans,” said Mahrous. The property’s front office team also monitors the FlyteBoard in the lobby for flight delays and cancellations to better estimate the number of distressed passengers to expect. “When our team knows how many distressed guests are coming, it enables them to set the most efficient staffing levels at the desk and in housekeeping,” Mahrous said.
