Aircraft Dispatcher Hubs Across the World

One of the requirements of accepting an aircraft dispatcher job is moving to the airline’s headquarters. Each airline in the world has its own aircraft dispatcher hub, a city that airline calls home and sets up headquarters. 

Though there are many aircraft dispatcher hubs that airlines use as main points in flights paths, there is only one airline hub that is also named headquarters. The headquarters is where you will be performing your duties outlined when you accepted your aircraft dispatcher job.  

Delta Airlines – Hartsfield-Jackson Airport in Atlanta, Georgia  

American Airlines – Dallas Fort Worth Airport in Dallas, Texas 

United Airlines – O’Hare Airport in Chicago, Illinois 

Southwest Airlines – Dallas Love Field Airport in Dallas, Texas 

Air France – Tremblay-en-France, France 

British Airways – Harmondsworth, United Kingdom 

South African Airways – Johannesburg, South Africa  

Emirates AirlinesDubai, United Arab Emirates 

Singapore Airlines – Singapore, Malaysia 

Turkish Airlines – Instanbul, Turkey 

Though aircraft dispatcher jobs offer to new graduates will most likely not be to any of the major airlines, if you accept a job from a major airline you will have to move to the airline’s headquarters.  

Aircraft dispatcher jobs require access to the airline’s systems, which requires going to the specific location. Having multiple location all over the world would just not make sense logistically, so this is not going to change any time soon. 

The good news is that, unless you make the decision, you will probably never have to move again. Job security in the aviation industry is strong, and the demand for aircraft dispatchers will be increasing over the next few years, so stability and security will be easy to come by.
