The sponsorship agreement will be published on the TfL website in the next few weeks. The end of year accounts will detail the capital costs and revenue figures. The Emirates Airline is a great success story with passenger numbers tracking at over 10 per cent ahead of projections and customer satisfaction at 93 per cent. Operational costs of the scheme are being covered and local businesses are reporting an increase in footfall and income as a direct result of the scheme.
