Opened to the public on 27 June, the London Emirates Air Line is the UK’s first urban cable car bringing a new and innovative way to cross London’s River Thames.
The new river crossing in East London can be used by pedestrians, wheelchair users and cyclists.
Every 30 seconds passengers can board one of the 34 cabins from two brand new terminals, Emirates Greenwich Peninsula and Emirates Royal Docks.
A journey across the 1.1 kilometre cable line takes up to 10 minutes.
The Emirates Air Line knits into London’s existing transport network providing an interchange with the Jubilee line and Docklands light railway.
It will be open seven days a week from 7am-9pm Monday to Friday; 8am-9pm Saturday and 9am-9pm Sunday. Opening hours will be extended when events take place locally and during the Olympics period.
Passengers can buy their boarding passes from vending machines or the ticket office at both Terminals.
