“We installed FlyteBoard airline flight information displays to give our guests a smooth travel experience. We also use the FlyteBoard to help us increase occupancy,” said General Manager of the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Dallas-Love Field Jeremy Millar. “Guests tell us they value knowing if their flight is on time before they leave the property. Plus, our property team watches the FlyteBoard departure screens for cancelled flights. If we see widespread airline cancellations due to weather or other factors, our staff calls the airlines to tell them if we have availability for distressed passengers. We run a busy hotel and now Flyte Systems helps us add even more room nights.”
The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Dallas-Love Field provides guests with two FlyteBoard departure screens and one arrival flight information display. All screens are large 55” displays inset flush with the property’s renovated lobby walls. The property offers 24-hour airport shuttle service. Its Sports Page Grill offers large flat-screen TV’s and a fully stocked bar that features steaks, sandwiches, salads and a breakfast buffet. The property is ideal for conferences, training seminars and memorable weddings with its 14,000 sq. ft. of flexible event space, and 12 versatile meeting rooms.
“Nearly all the DoubleTree’s guests are corporate and business travelers that arrive and depart from Dallas Love Field. We also host several airline crews. Making their flights on time is essential to business travelers and FlyteBoard helps them do this,” said Millar. “Guests also appreciate knowing if their flight is cancelled while they are still on property because it gives them the flexibility to extend their stay without leaving our hotel.”
“The FlyteBoard digital flight information display shows real-time arrivals, departures and gate information for multiple airports. It is a cost effective subscription service,” said Flyte Systems’ Vice President Scott Triphahn. “Many properties also display property promotion graphics and other revenue generating information on FlyteBoard.”
