Flyte Systems Installs Airline Flight Information Display
at Javits Center for IH/M&R Show

“Meet me at the  FlyteBoard”— IH/MRS attendees confirm airline flights on
FlyteBoard in Javits Center lobby, make confident travel  plans

CHICAGO, November 9, 2007 –   Flyte Systems, the leading provider of airport flight information displays and airline digital signage content for hotels, convention centers and related businesses, announced it is providing attendees at the International Hotel Motel and Restaurant Show (IH/MRS) at Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City with real-time flight information by installing its FlyteBoard display.  Attendees can view real-time airline scheduling information at the convention center to verify flight times prior to departing for their airports.  If flights are delayed or cancelled, attendees can use FlyteBoard to check alternate departing flights offered by each airline while still at the Javits Center. 

“Providing IH/MRS attendees with updated flight information for all three major airports serving New York City is a first for the Javits Center and a great service for business travelers,” said Doreen Guerin, Vice President Sales & Marketing of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.  A high-resolution 47-inch FlyteBoard panel that displays arrivals, departures, airlines, flight numbers, cities, flight status, times and gates for JFK, LaGuardia and Newark international airports will be mounted in the concierge area of the Javits Crystal Palace lobby.  

Flight info via ’glance-and-go’ viewing

Installed at many airport hotels, FlyteBoard’s high-definition LCD panel display is similar to those used by airline terminals.   Flyte Systems’ real-time airline scheduling content is delivered over a property’s high-speed Internet connection to provide accurate, continuously updated airport-centric flight information – not just FAA scheduled flight times that do not include delays caused by Air Traffic Control, aircraft maintenance or crew availability.
