The Ilyushin II-96 is a derivative of the first widebody airliner of the Soviet Union, the Ilyushin II-86. Unlike its antecedent, the II-96 is capable of flying on longer ranges, and equipped with more innovative technology. It is fitted with supercritical wings incorporating winglets, as well as a glass cockpit with electronic flight instrument displays, and fly-by-wire technology. In 1988, the aircraft made its first flight. In 1992, the Il-96 was awarded its type certification. The airliner has three major versions namely the Il-96-300, Il-96M/T, and Il-96-400.

The Il-96-400 is the same as the Il-96M. However, unlike the Il-96M that features Pratt and Whitney engines, the Il-96-400 is fitted with engines and avionics systems from Russia. The aircraft is a quadjet- it is powered by four Aviadvigatel PS-90A1 high-bypass commercial engines rated at 38,326 lbf thrust. Its engine is a twin-spool high-bypass turbofan with a single-stage fan, four-stage low-pressure and thirteen-stage high-pressure compressor, fully annular combustors, and two-stage high-pressure and four-stage low-pressure turbine.

The aircraft can accommodate a maximum of 436 passengers on board and the standard two-class layout can seat 386 passengers. It has a travel range of 5,400 nautical miles while carrying 315 passengers in a three-class layout. The aircraft has a service ceiling of 43000 feet and a cruise speed of 459 to 469 knots. It has a takeoff and landing distance of,2700 meters and 1,650 meters, respectively. The Il-96-400 has a maximum takeoff weight of 265,000 kg, a maximum payload of 58,000 kg, and a fuel tank capacity of 40,322 US gallons.

The Il-96-400 has an exterior length of 63.9 meters, an exterior height of 7 meters, a tail height of 15.7 meters, and a fuselage diameter of 6.08 meters. The aircraft cabin is 2.86-meter-high, 5.7-meter-wide, and 44.4-meter-long. It has a wheelbase of 26 meters, a wingspan of 60.1 meters, and a wing area of 350 square meters.
In February 2013, the Cuban Aviation Corporation signed a contract with Ilyushin for the three Il-96-400 aircraft orders.
