Emirates announced plans on Wednesday to open an indoor aviation themed attraction in London this July.
The carrier says London’s Emirates Aviation Experience (EAE), will be the first of its kind globally. The EAE, located at the South side of the Emirates Air Line cable car in London, will cover an area of almost 3,230 sq. ft. and will provide an insight into the operations and modern achievements of commercial air travel.
“This high-tech facility will bring to London a one of a kind insight into the dynamic world of aviation,” said Tim Clark, Emirates president. “The purpose of this center is to provide a fun, yet educational, overview of just what it takes to successfully get a 560-ton aircraft off the ground and 40,000 feet into the sky. Our aim is to explain the intricate science of modern aviation, in a hands-on, entertaining and instructive environment.”
