CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., July 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Global ePoint, Inc. (Nasdaq: GEPT - News), a leading manufacturer of digital surveillance and detection solutions, today announced that the UK’s leading leisure airline, First Choice Airways, has ordered its Cockpit Door Surveillance System (CDSS) from its Aviation Division, Global AirWorks. First Choice placed the order for immediate delivery to equip two Boeing 767 aircraft introduced last summer in its fleet of international charter planes. Forty CDSS kits have already been delivered for the First Choice aircraft fleet's A320, A321, and B757 models.

First Choice Airways is one of the UK’s leading leisure airlines and is part of international leisure travel company First Choice Holidays PLC. Based in Manchester, First Choice operates specialty sun and snow charter flights with a fleet of 32 aircraft that fly six million customers from 15 airports in the UK. More than 30,000 flights every year take holiday passengers to 60 worldwide destinations, including the Maldives, Mexico and resorts across the Mediterranean. The airline was founded in 1987 as air2000 and then re-branded as First Choice Airways in March 2004, assuming the name of its parent company to reflect its status as one of the UK’s four major tour operators.

The Global AirWorks’ CDSS: Cockpit Door Surveillance System provides video surveillance cameras throughout the cabin and cargo area along with touch screen access monitors mounted in the cockpit to enable the pilots to maintain a complete visual of the aircraft. The CDSS not only allows the flight crew to maintain the safety of the cockpit but it also provides a comprehensive safety and security tool for incidents of air rage, fire or mechanical issues, and loss prevention.
