FlyteBoard gives accurate flight information without guests having to open their laptops or log into a mobile website.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 16, 2011
Flyte Systems, the leading provider of airport travel information displays and digital signage content for the hospitality industry and the digital signage, convention center, and related businesses, announced installation of its FlyteBoard airport flight arrival and departure information display at the Hampton Inn & Suites Woodland-Sacramento Area.
FlyteBoard shows real-time airline flight information for Sacramento International Airport, boosting guests’ confidence in their travel plans. Flyte is the only full service flight information display solution that shows real-time departures.
“The majority of our guests are business travelers connected with companies based near our property who fly in and out of Sacramento International. Many guests stop me to say FlyteBoard is great because it gives them more time,” said Erik Burrow, general manager of the Hampton Inn & Suites Woodland Sacramento-Area. “I first saw FlyteBoard at an Embassy Suites near San Francisco International last year and wanted one for our hotel. We implemented our airport shuttle service in February when we installed the FlyteBoard and together they have made Park-N-Fly our most successful package.”
Burrow noted that many guests prefer to check their flight on the FlyteBoard rather than use the Hampton business center’s PCs. “FlyteBoard gives accurate flight information without guests having to open their laptops or log into a mobile website. In the past, guests frequently asked our front desk staff to verify flight times. Now they use the FlyteBoard. It is very convenient and I am recommending it our sister properties. Flyte Systems also added a national weather inset screen to our FlyteBoard so guests may check the climate at their destination and along their route. This is a valuable service for guests and I would recommend it for any airport hotel.”
Real-time Flight Information
What sets Flyte Systems apart from PC-based applications is its ability to post accurate, real-time airline flight arrivals and departures, 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: FlyteBoard, FlytePass, FlyteChannel, FlyteTouch, and now FlytePad with handheld mobile airline information.
- 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 hotel décor.
- 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.
