What's the job market like?
Aircraft dispatcher positions can be found within the airlines around the world. Large freight carriers like UPS, FedEx and Airborne also hire aircraft dispatchers. Dispatchers can move into this position from jobs as dispatch clerks, junior flight dispatchers, radio operators, meteorologists, or station managers. Promotion is from within.
According to 2010 reports from the US Department of labor, flight dispatcher jobs are expected to grow at a rate of 12 percent from 2008 to 2018. The demand for skilled flight dispatchers is growing as air travel continues to become safer and cheaper and increases in frequency as the preferred method of getting from point A to point B. This is due to the increase in international business travel requirements and in consumers who have the means to travel more often to see family members who live in distant regions.
There is an increased demand for flight dispatchers to manage commercial shipping flights to deliver goods around the globe.
