CHICAGO, IL – Air travel is more demanding than ever, and winter is coming. The busy 191-room Holiday Inn Newark Airport, across from Newark Liberty International, understands this and is ready. The property recently installed the FlyteBoard airline information display by Flyte Systems in its lobby to give guests real-time flight information for more relaxed travel plans.
Flyte Systems is the leading provider of cost effective airport travel information displays and digital signage content for the hospitality, corporate training center, digital signage and convention center industries, and related businesses.

“Our property is directly adjacent to Newark International and nearly all our guests are coming from or going to the airport. That is why we installed the FlyteBoard flight information display, so guests can verify flight times without calling their airline or pulling up an app on their handheld,” said Vanessa Ng, sales representative for the Holiday Inn Newark Airport. The property provides guests with many travel services including a 24-hour airport shuttle service. “Guests often extend their stay when they see an all-night delay or cancellation. FlyteBoard is a valuable guest amenity for airport properties like ours that care about helping guests have a great stay.” Ng noted that many guests wait out delays in the hotel’s 450 Bistro & Lounge for a beverage or meal until they see their flight is rescheduled.
“Today’s guests are frequent flyers; ‘digital natives’ who are comfortable using technology to help make decisions,” said Scott Triphahn, Flyte Systems vice president. “A hotel’s FlyteBoard puts accurate travel information in their hands so they can navigate their own travel experience. National forecasters predict a challenging ‘El Niño’ winter travel season. This makes access to real-time airline arrivals and departures particularly important for hotel guests and staff.”
