Be Part of the Team
Responsible for safe and efficient airline flights!
In the coming decade the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the trade association for the world’s airlines, representing some 290 airlines or 82% of total air traffic globally, forecasts a continuing need for airline dispatchers. Dispatchers are the key to airline’s safe and successful services and require no previous aviation knowledge or experience. Thousands of men and women in all global regions will be needed to provide the ongoing support needed by the world’s airlines!
The career of a flight dispatcher is an exciting and rewarding one that provides a great salary and benefits. You will prepare and manage flight plans, check weather forecasts, calculate required fuel quantity, assess aircraft technical condition, plan requirements for pilots and flight attendants, and much more. You will be part of team that provides all the necessary assistance and support to the crew in the cockpit over the course of the airlines’ service process.
DID YOU KNOW?
There are two people responsible for the operation and safety of every airline flight – the Captain, who is in charge of conducting the flight, and the Dispatcher, who is in charge of initiating and terminating the flight safely.
