Proof that London should make more of the River Thames in its transport strategy. MBNA Thames Clippers has been on an incredible journey over the last two decades and come such a long way since they transported their first passengers back in 1999. This year they celebrated their 20th anniversary year and have grown to carry over 4 million passengers annually. Sean Collins, CEO and co-founder of MBNA Thames Clippers says: “I’m excited to celebrate Thames Clippers’ 20th anniversary and showcase how much the business has evolved from when it first started. I couldn’t be more proud to say that from that first day, two decades ago, when we operated with just one vessel, carrying 80 people from Greenland, we now carry 4.2 million passengers annually, and boast a fleet of 19 vessels with an extended network of 22 piers from East to West, plus more in the pipeline.
