( RIA Novosti) - Domodedovo airport near Moscow is set to host the Business Aviation and General -Purpose Aviation of Russia show from July 31 to August 3 this year.

Around 150 Russian and foreign companies are expected to participate in the air show, which will take up about 5,000 square meters.

The event organizers hope for around 25,000 visitors, and expect expenses, totaling around $1.5 million, to be recouped within a year by boosted plane sales.

If the show proves successful, it will be merged into next year's 2009 international aviation and space air show MAKS, to be held in Zhukovsky, near Moscow.
