Airport or Flight Dispatcher Salary – Earnings in Airport Operations

In this video I talk about the salaries that Flight Dispatchers can expect in various countries around the globe.

I’ll describe the salary range you can expect from junior to senior positions in the countries where jobs are plentiful.

Then I’ll conclude this video with a few tips on how to get started on your career.

Aircraft or Flight Dispatchers are essential to the smooth running of any airport.

Every commercial aircraft that takes off from an airport requires a team of people who ensure its departure is safe and on time.

Flight Dispatchers are responsible for coordinating all the services and preparations required to ensure an aircraft leaves on schedule. There’s a video in my channel with more information about this important job,

but here are a few basic details. Flight Dispatchers start their shifts with checks on the status of the weather both current and forecast and for both the aircraft routes and destinations.

For this reason, Flight Dispatchers need to be able to confidently interpret weather data, NOTAMs, and other forms of information relating to aircraft in flight. They arrange the cleaning of passenger aircraft and the loading of cargo aircraft.

They arrange for the refueling, routine maintenance checks, and any ad hoc servicing that may be required on the aircraft.

As with most jobs, pay and benefits are commensurate with experience and responsibilities, and Flight Dispatcher positions are no exception.

The following figures are averages collected in late 2018.

They are base salaries so they don’t include any bonuses, overtime, or profit shares that may be offered.

This is an important point to remember because such extras can make a significant difference to your take-home pay.
