Kokua Hospitality, LLC of Chicago inked an agreement to install Flyte Systems' FlyteBoard real-time airline flight information displays, FlytePass boarding pass printing kiosks, and FlyteChannel in-room television feeds at five properties. Travelers will now be able to wait out flight delays in the comfort of their hotels.
The first Flyte Systems installations will be at Kokua's two Adams Mark properties in Indianapolis, IN and Buffalo, NY, followed by its three landmark properties in Chicago: The Allerton Hotel, Chicago City Centre Hotel & Sports Club, and the Inn of Chicago. Kokua plans to rollout Flyte products in other hotels in the future.
Flyte Systems' products utilize a property's existing high-speed Internet connection, so installation is also a simple process. Guests have the ability to check their flight status information either from the lobby or their room, and then print boarding passes. What sets Flyte Systems apart from other PC-based applications is its 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, or the weather.
Flyte Systems' suite of products that serve the traveling public include FlyteTouch, FlytePass, FlyteChannel and FlyteBoard. FlyteTouch enables individual guests to search flight information via touch screens that display real-time flight arrivals and departures 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. 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.
