Algerian Gondolas

There are multiple cable systems in Algeria, including three gondolas systems and several short-haul aerial trams. The gondolas are all multi-station MDG systems with blue, egg-shaped cabins. At least two more gondolas are being planned.

Located on a plateau, the Constantine gondola provides traffic congestion relief without the need for a surplus of new bridges and roads.

The Skikda gondola system connects two hillside communities to the city’s downtown, located in the valley.

In Tlemcen, the gondola is a seemingly tourist-oriented attraction, connecting the city’s south end elevated park to an amusement park in the north.
