Broadcast Real-time Flight Information on Your
Guest TV Network and Lobby Displays
State College, Pa September 3, 2008 – Flight Time TV, the premier supplier of real-time airport status on guest TV networks in hotels world wide, is proud to announce a huge boost in sales and clientele for the second quarter of this year. Since the development of “Flight Monitor” in January of 2008, Flight Time TV has seen a steady increase in the demand for this amenity; and more exciting still, there are plans being formulated with a large leading management company along with two innovative hotel brands for corporate contracts. 
Ron Koning, President of Flight Time TV, likes to think of this as a bright beginning for this newly developed and highly desired guest amenity. “With the travel industry booming, despite an economic decline, it is safe to say that this amenity will become as recognized and as firmly accepted and expected in hotels as internet access and television. We developed this amenity to meet the needs of an ever expanding, competitive market (Hotels).” continues Koning; “Guests will continually expect more of their stay; why not provide something that keeps you ahead of the curve?”
Not only is Flight Time valuable to a hotel guest’s satisfaction, there is a potential ROI to be generated. When guests have the convenience of rebooking or prolonging their stay because they have been promptly informed of the status of their flight, the service has already paid for itself. What Flight Time TV charges for one month of service is equal to what most hotels charge for a single nights stay. Because Flight Time TV offers the lowest pricing in the market, it is certain that nearly every hotel, big and small can afford this unique amenity. 
Its cost efficient, desired and it pays for itself. But what are the hotels saying about it?
“Flight Time TV is an inexpensive added amenity that guests really appreciate whether traveling on business or pleasure.  By showing it in the guestrooms and public areas of the hotel, guests can easily coordinate their departure from the hotel to meet any change of flight schedules for the particular day.” Scott Vandenberg, General Manager of the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport.
Steven F. Keup, General Manager of the Raleigh Marriott City Center says, “Flight Time is a great amenity to have in a full service downtown Convention hotel! Our guests love the easy access and real-time flight schedules available direct from their in-room TV’s”. 
"The Umstead Hotel & Spa is pleased to offer this unique service as yet another enhancement for our guests. We are able to offer Flight Time service in all of our guest rooms on the 42" High Definition plasma televisions. Nik Bhola, Director of Rooms of The Umstead Hotel and Spa, continues with, “It really is a valued tool for the traveler to know in real time the status of their departing flight, before they depart for the airport. If there are challenges, our Concierge is immediately available to assist with alternative arrangements."
