Flyte Systems Installs Airline Flight Information
Displays at Berger Hotels

Updated airline departure-arrival screens keep guests and revenue on property

CHICAGO, September 6, 2007 –   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 it will install its FlyteBoard real-time airline arrival and departure information display screens at the Robert Treat Hotel in Newark, New Jersey.  The Berger Organization operates the Robert Treat Hotel and the Ramada Inn Jersey City.  FlyteBoard is one of four solutions in the Flyte Systems product suite that provide the traveling public with critical flight information. 

Airline flight status information for ’glance-and-go’ guest viewing

FlyteBoard will enable groups of guests at the Robert Treat Hotel to view real-time flight information for Newark International Airport on high-definition, large screen display monitors similar to those at the airport   Flyte Systems uses the hotel’s high-speed Internet connection to provide accurate, instant, airport-centric updates of the flight information – not just FAA scheduled flight information that does not include delays caused by Air Traffic Control, aircraft maintenance or crew availability – to give  guests ’glance-and-go’ viewing of their travel plans.  Guests may easily scan departure times flight numbers and status, and gate locations 24 hours a day .

Flyte Systems airline information a profit center for hotels

“Nearly all our guests rely on the FlyteTouch lobby kiosks we currently have at our hotels to verify airline information before they leave for the airport,” said Miles Berger, president of The Berger Organization.  “When guests learn their flight is delayed, they usually remain on property and relax in our restaurant until their plane is ready.  If they see their flight is cancelled, they frequently extend their stay with us.  Flyte Systems’ airline information service is a profit center for our hotels.” 

Both the Robert Treat Hotel and the Ramada Inn Jersey City currently use two other solutions in the Flyte Systems product suite: the FlyteChannel in-room flight information service viewed on guest TVs; and the FlyteTouch system, which allows guests to search flight data on lobby touch screens. 

Flyte Systems enables hotels, conference centers and related businesses to choose from 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 the FlyteTouch technology and adds free, secure, boarding pass printing, packaged in an attractive all-wood kiosk.
  • FlyteChannel allows guests to view live airport arrival/departure screens via their in-room TV.
  • FlyteBoard is a wall or floor-stand mounted, high definition, flat panel screen for lobbies, restaurants, bars and other public areas, displaying flight information for one or more airports.
All FlyteSystems products can be configured to display information from one or multiple airports.
