Fourteen Hotels Add Flyte Systems Live Airline
Information to Serve Travelers
Increasing demand reflects growing guest expectations, immediate ROI
CHICAGO, IL October 29, 2008 – Flyte Systems, the leading provider of subscription-based airport flight information displays and digital signage content for the hospitality industry, convention centers and related businesses, announced that 14 properties signed contracts to install the company’s airline travel information products in the past 60 days. Properties installing FlyteBoard, FlytePass or FlyteChannel include Spring Hill Suites, Marriott, Holiday Inn, Hampton Inn, Westin, InterContinental, Doubletree, Crowne Plaza and other brands. Flyte Systems currently has more than 100 subscribers in 34 cities.
“A growing number of forward-looking operators are adding guest services that drive repeat business because they have real value for travelers,” said Brian Reynolds, Flyte Systems’ president. “Our cost-effective airline flight information displays, boarding pass printing, and guest-room services set properties apart, increase customer loyalty and drive revenue. Guests expect these types of travel services today and they are appreciative when they see Flyte products on property.” Flyte Systems is the only full-service flight information company that provides real-time airline departure times.
An Immediate ROI
The recent installations across the US from Baltimore to Los Angeles confirm the value of Flyte Systems’ low-risk, cost effective subscription service that installs quickly and easily and delivers immediate benefits to guests and operators. “Customers tell us their guests and corporate meeting planners specifically look for our products when selecting a property because they help avoid lengthy and often unnecessary stays in the airport caused by airline delays and cancellations,” said Reynolds. “It’s rare to find a product that delivers an ROI so quickly.”
Real-time Flight Information
What sets Flyte Systems apart from PC-based applications is the ability to post 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 and weather.
Flyte offers a suite of products that serve the traveling public: FlyteBoard, FlytePass, FlyteChannel and FlyteTouch.
