Airport Management

The Airport Management Division oversees the running of the Seychelles International Airport and Praslin Airport.

Its various responsibilities include:

  • Terminal & Landside Operations – To ensure terminal facilities and equipment’s for service delivery are in good functioning order with contingency plans to maintain operations, ensuring that passenger and baggage handling processing are carried out as smoothly without excessive delays and ensuring housekeeping, portage and terminal management services are maintained to high standards of customer expectations.

  • Airport Fire and Rescue Services - The principle objective of Seychelles International Airport Fire and Rescue Services is to save lives in the event of an aircraft accident or incident. This objective must assume the possibility of, and need for, extinguishing a fire that may occur immediately following an aircraft accident or incident, or at any time during rescue operations, including the suppression of cabin fires and rescue of aircraft occupants. Airport Fire and Rescue Services provides the initial response to an incident, pending the arrival of the Town Fire Brigade.
    The Airport Fire and Rescue Services must, by law, be able to reach the scene of a crash within two minutes and not exceeding 3 minutes. Equipped with E-ONE TITAN HPR and PROTECTOR fire Trucks, this can easily be done. A Fire Service control room monitors the runways and is always permanently manned by Fire Crew. It is the central point for all emergencies and alert. The control room contains the "Crash Alarm"

Under its auspices are the various support units such as Fire and Rescue Service, Maintenance and Housekeeping.
