UPS Airlines Hiring

Directly from the posting:

"Required Skills: Must possess an FAA Aircraft Dispatcher Certificate and have basic air carrier operations knowledge from a Part 135, 119, or 121 Domestic, Flag, or Supplemental operation".

Just like every other Part 121 Aircraft Dispatcher Position, a valid FAA Aircraft Dispatcher Certificate is required. The amount and type of experience listed in the posting is preferred, not required.

I get a lot of messages from people here and for some reason, people seem to think cargo ops like UPS and FDX are so different from a major pax airline, and often don't think we are Part 121 or a major airline. I do not understand this misconception. We are a major airline, and a highly complex one at that. The operation includes multiple fleet types, from A300 to B757, B767, MD-11F, B747-4, and B747-8. All shifts/desks will have most, if not all of these fleet types to work with every day. We operate domestically and worldwide, including non-scheduled military charters. One area where we are different, and I believe adds to the complexity, is that our arrivals are all at the same time. Same goes for our departures. It's not spread out throughout the day/night, so it can get crazy really fast when issues arise.

I like to think that if you can dispatch here, you can dispatch anywhere. This job requires the ability to seriously multitask and prioritize. Time management can be your best friend but if you can't manage it, it can tank your day in a hurry. Mastering the complexities of our operation can truly bring personal satisfaction on the job front, for those that have that drive to do well.

Best of luck to all who are applying!

Is UPS doing passenger charters again? I notice their Custom Critical service offers passenger service. Who handles the inflight service? I know in the 90s when they tried pax service, they used a flight attendant contract company. Do you all have an inflight management team?

I’m going to say no. It says they use their network of over 400 providers. So they likely just act as a middle man.

Keep your eyes open for another posting soon! Aiming to start another class of 5 in March.
What is the official job title of that position? UPS has lots of jobs and I’m not sure how to find the right section. Also do you fall under the corporate umbrella?
When we hire, it’s listed as an assistant dispatcher position. You can monitor this site for job postings. https://www.jobs-ups.com/search-job...254925-4296212-4299276/38x25424/-85x75941/5/2 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
