Fire Services

Any International airport falls within a particular Crash Category which specifies the equipment, amount of extinguishing agents and number of vehicles and personnel that have to be available at a particular aerodrome. Malta’s airport Crash Category is determined by the size of the largest aircraft operating regularly to/from Malta. Malta Airport is a Category 9 airport which means that the Airport’s Rescue and Fire Fighting Services are capable of handling aircraft as large as the Airbus A330/A340 or Boeing B777, which visit regularly.
