A total of 59 Russian firms and agencies, including 27 defense companies, will take part in the upcoming international air show outside Paris, the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) said.
The 49th International Paris Air Show will be held at Le Bourget on June 20-26.
“Twenty-seven defense companies will exhibit military aircraft and related products,” a FSMTC spokesman told RIA Novosti on Thursday.
According to the official, Russian Sukhoi Superjet 100 passenger jet and Be-200 amphibious plane will make demonstration flights at the biennial air show, which this year attracted over 2,000 exhibitors and 205 official delegations from 88 countries.
Aircraft industry experts agree that Russia, China and Brazil will dominate the Paris Air Show this year.
