I am pleased to report that passenger numbers on the Emirates Air Line are continuing to grow.

With growing customer awareness becoming ever more apparent, and comparing the most recent 12 month period (mid-August 2014 to mid-August 2015) to the same period in the previous year passenger numbers have increased by 12.4% year-on-year. 

Please refer to the answer to question 2014/4156 for the figures for 2013/14.

Please see the Appendix B for the requested information for the current year to date.

The table shows both the number of tickets sold and the equivalent number of single journeys which that translates to. For example, one return ticket is the equivalent of two journeys.
