We will permanently close on Sunday 5 June 2022.
It is with great sadness that we must inform you that the Emirates Aviation Experience will be closing to the public later this year. The past 9 years have been a real pleasure as almost one million visitors got to experience what we had to offer and over 25,000 simulator sessions were delivered to budding pilots from all over the world. We hope all of our visitors will remember the experience with fond memories – we certainly will.
Please be aware that until further notice our Accessible Lift is our of service. We apologise for the inconvenience.
How to get here
We are inside the M25 and outside the Congestion Zone. You can use the Millennium Way or Edmund Halley Way junctions and you can also follow the O2 signposts. For parking please read below.
By cable car
We are right outside the cable car south terminal, the Emirates Greenwich Peninsula. You can get to the north terminal, the Royal Docks, with the DLR. The nearest stop is Royal Victoria. For more details go to TFL online.
We are nearby the North Greenwich Pier. The MBNA Thames Clippers arrive from the London Eye and London Bridge Piers, and the journey takes around 30 minutes. You can go on their website for more details about Clippers.
Parking is available nearby (parking map in PDF) at hourly rates. If you are planning to use any of the O2 Car Parks, we recommend contacting them in advance at 020 8463 6718 to confirm the prices, as they may be different on the day of your visit, if there is an event happening. Alternatively, you could park at the nearby Holiday Inn Greenwich Parking or at the NCP.
We are on the Greenwich Peninsula, a hub of activity with many exciting things happening almost every day.
We are minutes away from The O2, which has many restaurants, bars and attractions, including a Cineworld, the Nissan Innovation Station and Sky Studios. You can find out more at Do More at the O2 website. If you’ve got a head for heights, you can also visit Up at the O2 and walk over the arena’s iconic dome.
New Covid Safety Policy
While we will continue to encourage our visitors and staff to wear a mask, this will no longer be mandatory. Please continue being respectful of the individual choices of others and maintain social distancing wherever possible with people outside of your group. We will continue to clean our venue and simulators regularly throughout the day with approved anti-virus grade products.
Please note that we are closed Monday 7th to Sunday 13th March 2022 due to annual maintenance.
