Lift typeContinuous-movement gondola
Ready for boarding – a short flight across the Thames.
The Emirates Air Line cable car was opened on schedule to coincide with the Summer Olympics in London. Spacious ten-passenger cabins connect the Royal Victoria Dock, where the ExCeL exhibition centre is located, with the Greenwich Peninsula – the site of the O2- Arena. The UK’s first urban ropeway got off to a flying start: Within two months of opening, it had already carried one million passengers. You won’t find a faster check-in anywhere else in the world.
