Interactive stations installed at ten Brasilian airports will allow travelers to map out and call hotels for free. The Associacao Brasileira da Industria de Hoteis (ABIH) announced the Disque Hoteis initiative yesterday, on Hoteliers Day, at Cumbica International Airport in Guarulhos (GRU).

The Disque Hoteis computers function through broadband internet connections. Users can search accommodations by region, view photos and call directly to more than 2,000 ABIH-affiliated hotels. Rede Multitoky, the company responsible for the machines, already has installed 63 screens at the following airports: Brasília (BSB), Campinas (CPQ), Congonhas (CGH), Guarulhos (GRU), Galeão (GIG), Santos Dumont (SDU), Salvador (SSA), Porto Alegre (POA), Curitiba (CWB) and Florianópolis (FLN). Nearly 110 million travelers pass through these landing fields every year.
