Embassy Suites Boston at Logan Airport is providing guests with a new 21st century amenity—a convenient digital signage total travel information center. The hotel installed an enhanced FlyteBoard display from Flyte Systems, the leading provider of real-time airline flight information and travel content for the hospitality industry, convention centers, and related businesses.
The new high-definition FlyteBoard provides guests with departures at Logan International Airport, a customized property reader board display of daily hotel meetings and events, updated weather and storm warnings, and breaking news alerts.

‘Flyte Systems delivers a valuable service at a very reasonable cost’
“I worked with Flyte Systems at other Hilton properties and know that guests value Flyte’s reliable airline information displays. We wanted more at this property, and Flyte delivered a total traveler information package,” said Joseph Sullivan, director of engineering and security for Aimbridge Hospitality at Embassy Suites Boston Logan Airport. “The property’s FlyteBoard is a large flat panel monitor that displays the property’s meetings and events, airline activity at Boston Logan, and has a section that rotates between weather and US news headlines. We are very pleased with the finished product. This is a valuable service for guests at a very reasonable price.” Flyte Systems is the only full service flight information display solution that provides real-time airline departure information.
No other digital signage company offered what Flyte Systems delivered
“We evaluated other companies, but none of them offered what Flyte Systems could deliver,” Sullivan said. “Our new FlyteBoard is much more attractive and delivers more information than a standard reader board. We provide professional property meeting room photos and graphics to Flyte and they customized our board with Embassy Suites and Aimbridge Hospitality logos. Flyte’s airline information is absolutely essential to our guests; this saves our front desk staff time and enables us to run a more efficient guest service operation.”
