Leading Management Company Selects FlyteBoard to Serve Air Travelers in Virginia, DC Properties
Real-time flight information in the hotel
FlyteBoard, developed by Flyte Systems, is a high definition, flat panel screen that properties install in public areas to provide guests with travel planning content at a glance. 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
Flyte offers a suite of products that serve the traveling public: FlyteBoard, FlytePass, FlyteChannel and FlyteTouch:
- 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 uses FlyteTouch technology and adds free, secure boarding pass printing, packaged in an all-wood kiosk.
- FlyteChannel permits guests to view live airport arrival/departure screens via their in-room TV.
- FlyteTouch enables individual guests to search flight information via touch screens that display real-time flight arrivals and departures for one or more airports.
According to Woodhead, the first three properties represent Phase I of a rollout that targets big box and full service properties, including the two Reagan National hotels. Phase II will cover smaller properties and will be assessed in coming months. "We have been looking a long time for a solution like this. What impressed us about Flyte Systems is that they have been providing this technology to airports for more than 40 years," he says. "Plus, no one else can match their combination of reliability and price."
