The Rotair made history as the first aerial tramway with rotating cabin floors. The cabins supplied in 1992 have now been replaced. The new models made by CWA Constructions S.A. also incorporate a special feature. During the trip from the bottom terminal up to the Titlis, the entire cabin – and not just the floor – revolves once about its axis. This opens up a unique panoramic view of the glacier landscape during the five-minute ride. The rotation mechanism is located on the cabin roof. Thanks to this novel system, it was possible to dispense with the dominant central column in the cabin. For the passengers, that means more room and therefore greater comfort. The tanks for carrying water up to the summit restaurant have been retained as an integral feature of the new cabins.
