Air Dispatch CLC celebrates millionth load sheet milestone

Centralised load control specialist Air Dispatch CLC is celebrating the successful completion of its 1,000,000th load sheet.

The milestone was reached on April 16th 2014 with the production of a load sheet for Finnair flight AY617 from Helsinki to Copenhagen.

The Finnish national flag-carrier – one of Air Dispatch CLC’s longest standing clients – was presented with a commemorative award to mark the occasion at the recent IGHC Ground Handling Conference held in Kuala Lumpur.

Nick Yeadon, CEO of Air Dispatch CLC, comments:

“This landmark occasion highlights how Air Dispatch has expertly and efficiently established itself as a leader in the field of centralised load control services, seamlessly implementing solutions for airlines worldwide. This number is only set to multiply as our client base continues to expand.”

Ari Kuutschin, Head of Ground Operations at Finnair, added:

“Air Dispatch CLC is an excellent partner for Finnair and its flexible approach has ensured safety and accuracy since day one. I am very pleased Finnair was fortunate enough to have received the accolade of being the partner who reached the millionth load sheet with them. We look forward to being present when they reach the next million and beyond.”

Since commencing operations in 2008, Air Dispatch has grown into one of the world’s leading experts in centralised load control services for the airline industry.

The company currently operates two state-of-the-art centralised load control (CLC) centres in Prague, Czech Republic and Warsaw, Poland and works with a client base consisting of both legacy and new generation carriers.

From producing 44,685 load sheets in its first 12 months of business, the company has expanded and now generates nearly 450,000 load-sheets a year – delivered to over 200 airports on six continents.
