Flight International online news 10:30GMT: Malaysian low-cost carrier AirAsia has selected AD Aerospace’s cockpit door monitoring system for seven of its Boeing 737-300 aircraft.

The FlightVu security system consists of two or three closed circuit television cameras, which provide pilots with real-time video coverage of the area outside the cockpit door, including the adjacent galleys.

US company Aircraft Engineering and Installation Services will supply the installation design.

Financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

According to Avsoft’s ACAS database, AirAsia operates 21 737-300s. The carrier will take delivery of the first of 60 Airbus A320s in December.

AD Aerospace managing director Mike Horne says the AirAsia contract is the “first of many” to be announced in Asia.

The Manchester, UK-based company has already secured contracts with several airlines, including BMI, BWIA West Indies Airways, EasyJet, Hapagfly (formerly Hapag-Lloyd), JetBlue Airways and MyTravel.
