    Dubai-based Emirates, one of the world’s fastest growing airlines, plans to open an indoor aviation themed attraction in London, the first of its kind globally.

    The Emirates Aviation Experience, located south of the Emirates AirLine, the cable car system across the River Thames, will cover an area of almost 300 sq m 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, president Emirates Airlines.

    “The purpose of this centre is to provide a fun, yet educational, overview of just what it takes to successfully get a 560 tonne 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.”

    “London is one of the greatest cities in the world, with one of the world’s busiest international airports, making it the perfect setting for this interactive experience,” Clark continued.

    And perhaps they will throw in a £ 10 discount coupon on your next flight.

    Make it £ 100 and can the exhibit. This must cost a pretty penny.
