Description: The Ilyushin Il-96 is a four-engine, wide-body, longer range passenger and freighter aircraft based upon the Il-86 airliner. The Il-96 aircraft features a fuselage shortened approx. 4 meters, a new wing layout, a seating capacity between 235 and 436 passengers, and fly-by-wire controls. The Il-96 wide-body aircraft family includes the Il-96-300 and Il-96-400 airliners and the Il-96T and Il-96-400T freighters. The Il-96 powered by western engines and the Il-98 twin-engine airliners were cancelled. The Il-96 maiden flight was carried out on September 28, 1988. In July 1993 the first Il-96-300 airliner entered into service.
The Iyushin Il-96-400M is a derivative of the Il-96-400 long-haul, wide-body airliner featuring more powerful PS-90A1 engines, stretched fuselage, improved aerodynamics and composite materials in order to reduce the aircraft weight and achieve greater cabin comfort. The Il-96-400M will be able to transport 370 passengers delivering outstanding comfort and higher levels of safety. In addition to additional thrust the new engines will provide higher fuel efficiency boosting the aircraft's range. The upgraded Il-96-400M is expected to enter revenue service by 2020-2021.
