Malakoff French pronunciation: ​[ɔf] is a suburban commune in the Hauts-de-Seine department southwest of Paris, France. It is located 5 km (3.1 mi) from the centre of the city. EUROCAE, the European Organisation for Civil Aviation Equipment is based in Malakoff.


The commune of Malakoff was created on 8 November 1883 by detaching its territory from the commune of Vanves. Its name was taken from an inn sign "À la Tour de Malakoff" (= "At the Malakoff Tower"); the inn was so named in 1855 to commemorate the Battle of Malakoff, fought during the Crimean War.[1]


Malakoff is served by two stations on Paris Métro Line 13: Malakoff – Plateau de Vanves and Malakoff – Rue Étienne Dolet.
