Winter Travel

December 11, 2017

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and your airport experience should be wonderful too! We’re sharing our best tips on alleviating the stresses of holiday travel so you can arrive at your destination full of good cheer.

1. Don’t Underestimate the Usefulness of Apps

Many apps have been developed with the sole purpose of streamlining your airport experience. If you’ve ever wondered what you can or cannot bring aboard a plane, we recommend downloading the MyTSA App. MyTSA is full of helpful information on what you can pack in your bag and tips on getting through security lines faster.

Before heading off to the airport, we also recommend downloading the app of the carrier you’re flying with. You’ll receive immediate notifications on any flight status updates and gate changes. Plus, you can conveniently check-in to your flight from the app and receive a digital copy of your boarding pass, meaning less waiting in airport lines.

The Hidden Benefits of Real-Time Flight Information

by Ashley Toney on August 21, 2017

Savvy hotel properties use flight information as a tool to increase occupancy and boost operational efficiency


FlyteBoard gives guests the flexibility to extend their stays without leaving the hotel

August 21, 2017

For airport hotels, having a flight screen on the premises is an invaluable resource for their traveling guests. What may not be immediately obvious are the advantages that these FlyteBoards create for the properties themselves. Take a look at how innovative hotels across the country are using Flyte Systems to boost efficiency and generate additional revenue.

Profit from Delays & Cancellations

If a guest sees that their flight is delayed or cancelled, what’s their most convenient option? Putting yourself in that situation, would you rather (a) stay in the comfort of your hotel or (b) pass the time in a stiff airport chair? Most of us would find that (a) would be our first preference.

FlyteBoard gives guests the flexibility to extend their stays without leaving the hotel – converting flight cancellations into additional bookings. Have guests wait out a delay with a good read from your gift shop and a refreshing beverage from your lobby bar. The longer the guest is on your property, the more likely they are to consume on-site services.

That makes having a FlyteBoard flight information digital signage display a very important service for us,” said General Manager Marcus A. Patrick. “I managed another airport property in Atlanta that had FlyteBoard. FlyteBoard proved its value as a guest service amenity.

Location, Interactive Content, and Relevant Information Make the Difference

3 Tips to Improve Guest Experience

Changes in signage positioning, location and content strengthen impact and value for hotel guests.

November 16, 2016

Hotel guests are familiar with digital signage. It can be found nearly everywhere. If you are an operator, you probably have at least one display in your lobby. Digital signage is a good way to provide property and regional information to guests; it can even be a profit center. But, do you wonder if it is doing its job? Here are three tips on how to improve your digital signage and add value to your property’s guest experience.

1. Placement is important – do guests see your message?
If you want your digital signage to be effective, whether it provides property information and promotions, regional events and maps, or wayfinding, put it in a high traffic area. Placing it near the front desk where guests will see it when they check-in is ideal. Likewise, near elevators where there is a captive audience or near a concierge station or information desk. Take a day to watch the lobby guest traffic flow. This will tell you the best place to display your content.
