Wahida Parker, the managing director of the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company, says the tourist company is excited for the historical nomination as international tourism slowly returns.
She's encouraged Capetonians to vote for the cableway to help boost the global status of the popular attraction.
Parker has also urged residents to vaccinate and adhere to Covid-19 protocols in order to help protect the tourism industry ahead of a looming fourth wave.
We've also been nominated for the very first time in 92 years, as the leading cable car of the world... I'm hugely optimistic that we can bring this one home.Wahida Parker, Managing Director - Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company
I'm super excited, I think it's fantastic that as a country, we've pulled together, the vaccination numbers are going up. And we are still urging people - in light of the fact that there is this fourth wave looming - to try and stick to our protocols... we can't let go of that now.Wahida Parker, Managing Director - Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company
We cannot derail all the good work that has gone into making sure that travel and tourism starts up again.Wahida Parker, Managing Director - Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company
