Emirates Air Line Cable Car Tour

Emirates Cable Car is the newest attraction added to London’s great attraction list. And it is the first cable car to be built in the UK. The aim of the cable car is to let the public have efficient travel at the peak time of the Olympics. The London Thames Cable is majorly sponsored by Emirates Airlines. The total cost of the construction was £45 m and the major part of it is sponsored by Emirates £36 million. The cable car will run between new stations from Emirates Greenwich Peninsula on the South London side and the Emirate Royal docks on the North London side. Many have predicted that the Cable car will become a tourist attraction instead of a daily commute means of transport. In either case, London will be benefited from this add-on to the London attractions.

On 28th June 2012 Emirates Air Line London Cable Car was opened to the general public. Emirates Air Line Cable car provides a paramount Thames river crossing for east London commuters. London cable car provides an important link between the O2 and Excel London.
