Air Dispatch CLC selected by LOT Polish Airlines for centralised load control services

Air Dispatch CLC today announced that it has been selected by LOT Polish Airlines to provide specialist centralised load control services.

The company – which recently delivered its millionth load sheet – formally signed the contract with the Polish national flag carrier at the recent IGHC Ground Handling Conference held in Kuala Lumpur.

LOT Polish Airlines becomes the 12th customer to outsource its load control requirements to Air Dispatch CLC, which currently operates two state-of-the-art centralised load control (CLC) centres in Warsaw, Poland and Prague, Czech Republic.

LOT Polish Airlines will utilise Air Dispatch CLC’s Warsaw facility for departures from all of their outstations, totalling over 20,000 flights a year based on current levels.

Nick Yeadon, CEO of Air Dispatch, comments:

“We are delighted to have won the confidence of one of Europe’s best known legacy carriers and we look forward to providing LOT Polish Airlines with world-class load control solutions that exceed expectations.”

Elzbieta Skatulska, Head of Ground Operations at LOT Polish Airlines, added:

“Air Dispatch’s comprehensive expertise has been clear to see from the start, evident from their previous implementations of other airline clients on the same Altea FM platform that we use. We have been impressed by the professionalism and proficiency that Air Dispatch CLC has demonstrated and we are looking forward to working with them.”
