Malta IAP's Rescue and Fire Fighting team was quick on the scene, taking control of the area in question. Consequently, the aerodrome was temporarily closed effecting two flights inbound to Malta IAP. Lufthansa's LH1276 from Frankfurt had to divert to Catania-Fontanarossa, while Tunisair Express' UG1300 from Tunis-Carthage had to return back to Tunis-Carthage. The aerodrome was re-opened again to flight operations around 1220lt.
