Holiday Inn San Diego Bayside Clears 'Fog' Surrounding Flight Uncertainty

The 235-room Holiday Inn San Diego Bayside hotel has completed the implementation of Flyte Systems' FlyteBoard real-time airline flight information display and FlytePass airline boarding pass printing service

"Travelers today expect real-time airport flight information at their hotel and Flyte Systems uses the latest technology to keep our guests informed about their flights," says Jodie Langhammer, CMP, national sales manager for the Holiday Inn San Diego Bayside. "Customer service is the highest priority at our hotel and providing Flyte Systems' airport information is an excellent way to give our guests the highest level of service."

A majority of the Holiday Inn Bayside's guests travel through San Diego International Airport. "We specialize in hosting military reunions, and most of the attendees are senior citizens," says Langhammer. "We feel it is very important to keep their travel days as stress free as possible. By providing FlyteBoard and FlytePass service, we make it easier for all our guests to travel." In June, 2010, the property was selected as "One of the Top 10 Great Places to hold a Reunion" by USA Today.ÕÕ

Langhammer notes that fog can be a major factor in flying in and out of San Diego. "Having the FlyteBoard with Doppler radar display assists guests with travel planning," she says. In 2009 the Holiday Inn San Diego Bayside qualified and became part of the Holiday Inn brand relaunch to be more contemporary and competitive in the market. The hotel's implementation of Flyte Systems flight information and boarding pass printing is part of the property's total upgrade program.

Real-time flight info
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 Systems offers a suite of products that serve the traveling public: FlyteBoard, FlytePass, FlyteChannel and FlyteTouch.Õ

  • 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.
  • FlytePass combines FlyteTouch with free, secure boarding pass printing and can be provided stand alone or neatly packaged in an optional all wood kiosk or integrated metal kiosk, to match your décor.
  • FlyteChannel permits guests to view live airport flight information conveniently and comfortably from their in-room television.
  • FlyteTouch enables individual guests to search flight information using an interactive touch screen that displays real-time flight arrivals and departures for one or more airports.
