Fourteen properties will soon be using Flyte Systems’ live airline travel-information products. Participating properties include Spring Hill Suites, Marriott, Holiday Inn, Hampton Inn, Westin, InterContinental, Doubletree and Crowne Plaza.
Flyte products post accurate, real-time airline flight arrival and departure information, rather than FAA-regulated scheduled departure times that do not list delays caused by air traffic control, aircraft maintenance, crew availability and weather.
Products include FlyteBoard, a flat-panel screen for public areas, displaying flight information for one or more airports; FlyteTouch, enabling guests to search flight information using an interactive touch screen that displays real-time flight arrivals and departures for one or more airports; FlytePass, combining FlyteTouch with free, secure boarding-pass printing; and FlyteChannel, permitting guests to view live airport flight information from their in-room television.
