|CHICAGO, November 9, 2007 –
the leading provider of airport flight information displays and airline
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
by installing its FlyteBoard display. Attendees can view real-time
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.
