Emirates Air Line

Reaching for the Sky.

I absolutely love traveling across the River Thames, via the Emirates Air Line, even though it is simpler, and cheaper, to stay on the Jubilee Line. 

The reason is the novelty, which still hasn't worn off after countless flights. The views are unique and you can see so much: The Thames Barrier, Canary Wharf, The Shard, the Olympic Park, the Old Royal Naval College and lots more, on a clear day. 


Brief History

Opened on June 28, 2012, the Emirates Air Line links the Greenwich Peninsula with the Royal Docks, adding an extra transport link to the area.

It is operated by Transport for London and has a flight time of 10 minutes, which is reduced to 5 minutes in rush hour.
