Seven Ways Hotels Can Generate Revenue Using Flyte Systems
.


CHICAGO, January 9, 2008 –   Flyte Systems, the leading provider of airport flight information displays and digital signage content for the hospitality and convention center industries and related businesses, announced its FlyteBoard real-time airline arrival and departure information display screens are now installed at the Dallas/Fort Worth Marriott Airport Hotel.  FlyteBoard is one of four Flyte Systems service solutions that provide the traveling public with reliable flight information. 

“Many of our guests travel to and from the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, and knowing their flight status at DFW before they leave the hotel is important,” said Sharon Capka, Resident Manager of the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport Marriott Hotel.  “There is no question that our guests and the airline crews who stay with us value the airport travel information we now provide because it adds a new convenience to their travel experience.”   Flight information for Dallas/Fort Worth Airport is electronically transmitted to FlyteBoard displays via the property’s existing high-speed Internet connection.  

FlyteBoard, developed by Flyte Systems, is a wall, floor or ceiling mounted high-definition, flat panel screen that the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport Marriot Hotel installed in its lobby to provide guests with ‘glance and go’ convenience for more confident travel planning.  What sets Flyte Systems’ applications apart from other PC-based systems is the ability to display accurate real-time airline flight arrival and departure information, not FAA-regulated scheduled departure times that do not list delays caused by

  • Air Traffic Control,
  • Aircraft maintenance,
  • Crew availability,
  • Weather.
Flyte Systems offers a suite of products that serve the traveling public:  FlyteTouch, FlytePass, FlyteChannel and FlyteBoard.  
  • FlyteTouch enables individual guests to search flight information via touch screens that display real-time flight arrivals and departures for one or more airports.  
  • FlytePass uses FlyteTouch technology and adds free, secure boarding pass printing, packaged in an all-wood kiosk.
  • FlyteChannel permits guests to view live airport arrival/departure screens via their in-room TV.
  • 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.
All Flyte Systems products can be configured to display information from one or multiple airports.  Flyte Systems applications are often used by properties to generate increased revenue streams with innovative marketing approaches to the distressed traveler.
