New dates for MAKS 2019 announced
The next chapter of Moscow’s MAKS, the largest and oldest air show on the territory of the former Soviet Union, is to take place from August 27 to September 1, 2019, at its conventional Zhukovsky site, reports Aviasalon, which has once again been appointed by the Russian ministry of industry and trade to serve as organiser of the event.
The previous dates, set for July 23-28, have been put back to avoid a clash with the Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD)-endorsed and organised event, the military-technical forum Army-2019, which has now been promoted from a biennial event to an annual frequency.
In times when companies associated with Russia’s defence industry are not necessarily welcome at western events, the country’s MoD has opted to start its forum the very next day after the closing of the Le Bourget-based International Paris Air Show, arguably the world’s oldest and largest aerospace and defence exhibition.
As far as MAKS 2019 is concerned, Russia is working hard to welcome China as its country partner. Denis Manturov, minister of industry and trade, revealed this possibility for the first time in October.
Since its inception in 1993, MAKS has been held every odd calendar year, as a biennial event. Since 2005, Russian Aviation Insider and its sister publication ATO.ru have been providing coverage as the official show daily as Show Observer.
