Aviation Boost Forecast

MOSCOW -- Civil aviation in the Commonwealth of Independent States is in deep crisis but could revive in the second half of 1996, an agent for Western aviation companies said Wednesday. An official of Aces, which represents the Boeing company in Russia, said 1995 would see a fall in the number of passengers using internal air transport. But Boeing experts forecast an increase in international passengers of 6.5 percent annually between 1996 and 2013.
