The International Aviation and Space Salon 2015, also known as MAKS, was held last week in the Moscow Region town of Zhukovsky and saw the participation of 720 aerospace companies, 609 of which were Russian. The commercial results of the convention are still being calculated, but the total value of deals concluded this year is expected to be less than $18 billion, down from 2013. The Sukhoi Civilian Aircraft company enjoyed by far the biggest success, signing over $1 billion in contracts for the supply of about 40 Sukhoi Superjet 100 regional jets, mostly to Yamal Airlines.
