According to the second agreement, three Il-96-400 planes, which will be remade from the cargo version into passenger one, and two Tu-204SM, which Cuba will receive after tests and certification, will be supplied to Cuba. Besides, the agreements, according to Manturov, envisage the supply of spare parts for the maintenance of those planes which are already in Cuba.
