Armenia’s Wings of Tatev Cable Car Nominated for World Travel Awards 2023: Voting Now Open For All!

Armenia's pride and a marvel of engineering, the Wings of Tatev cable car, has yet again earned global recognition. Nominated for the prestigious international tourism award, the World Travel Awards 2023, the cable car finds itself in contention for the coveted title of "World's Leading Cable Car Ride 2023." This nomination comes as a reaffirmation of the project’s excellence, having previously clinched the same title in 2021. The Wings of Tatev is now up against cable cars from Bolivia, Brazil, Vietnam, Canada, New Zealand, the USA, and South Africa.

Standing as the world's longest passenger cable car, Wings of Tatev entered the annals of history, securing its place in the Guinness Book of Records. Its record-setting length of 5,752 meters is not the only remarkable feat. What sets this engineering marvel apart is the incredible speed at which it was constructed—a mere 10 months. The realization of this visionary project is credited to the expertise of the Austrian-Swiss company Doppelmayr/Garaventa, renowned leaders in ropeway construction.

Monday marked the 13th anniversary of the Wings of Tatev cable car, a beacon of pride for Armenia. Since its inauguration in 2010, it has become a lifeline for more than 1,300,000 people who have experienced the breathtaking journey it offers. Remarkably, this cable car has played a pivotal role in boosting tourism, with every fifth tourist in Armenia making their way to Tatev thanks to this iconic ride.

The Wings of Tatev project, a cornerstone of the "Tatev Revival Program," was initiated by philanthropists Ruben Vardanyan and Veronika Zonabend. This non-profit endeavor not only connects visitors to the historic Tatev Monastery but also contributes significantly to the restoration of this cultural gem and the development of the local community. Managed by Impulse Business Management, all proceeds from the cable car are dedicated to these noble causes, making it a symbol of sustainable tourism and community support.

Armenians and supporters of this remarkable project are encouraged to cast their votes for the Wings of Tatev in the World Travel Awards 2023. Voting is open until November 17 and can be done by visiting the official award website, registering with an email, confirming the registration, and selecting the "World's Leading Cable Car Ride 2023" category. Voters can then choose the Wings of Tatev, Armenia, and click "Vote Now" to show their support for this extraordinary engineering marvel.

As the Wings of Tatev soars towards global recognition, it stands as a testament to the ingenuity and determination of the people behind its creation and the enduring spirit of Armenia in embracing innovation, history, and tourism on a grand scale.
