Flyte Systems, the leading provider of airport travel information displays and digital signage content for the hospitality industry, digital signage, convention centers and related businesses, announced the Atlantic Resort and Spa installed the FlyteBoard and FlytePass travel solutions.

“Guests are always concerned about their flights, and Flyte Systems’ airline information displays and boarding pass printing terminals provide travelers with confidence in their plans that lets them relax while they are here,” said Paul Celnik, general manager of the Atlantic Resort and Spa in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. “Flyte Systems’ solutions are reasonably priced, and with the FlyteBoards in the lobby, there is no reason for guests to be nervous. If they see their flight is delayed, they stay on property and have a meal or beverage in comfortable surroundings until their flight has a new scheduled departure.”
Celnik noted that Hurricane Irene recently caused more guests than usual to monitor the Resort’s FlyteBoards. “Storms always make our flight information services more important to guests, and most of them print boarding passes at our FlytePass terminal in the business center. Many guests have never seen this kind of familiar flight display outside of airports and it impresses them. I cannot see why more hotels do not offer this service.”
Atlantic Resort and Spa installed a large high-definition FlyteBoard that displays airline departure times for Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International, Palm Beach International, and Miami International airports. “Guests utilize all three airports and appreciate our comprehensive travel information,” Celnik said. “One area of our FlyteBoard also shows Doppler radar and national weather that adds another layer of service that travelers value.”
