"Antonov" agreed with Cuba on the post-warranty service of Ukrainian An-158

"Antonov" agreed with Cuba on the post-warranty service of Ukrainian An-158
The state enterprise Antonov and the Cubana airline Cubana agreed to conclude contracts for post-warranty servicing of Ukrainian An-158 airplanes on the principles of full fleet support for all positions.
Also, to resume the work of the aircraft, idle due to the lack of components, "Antonov" pledged to form a stock of spare parts, as well as ensure their supply in conjunction with foreign partners. 

The Antonov press service added that airworthiness directives have been issued that allow the Cuban An-158 to continue operation until 3,600 flights, which will allow them to continue operation for about six months.
A few days earlier, Cuban media reported that technical problems with the An-158 aircraft led to the cancellation of the flights of Cubana airline Guantanamo-Havana. According to the registry flightradar24, at the moment of the six An-158, delivered by Antonov to Cuba, flights are performed by only one airliner with the onboard number CU-T1714. 

Six An-158 for Cubana produced a production plant "Antonov" in Kiev. Deliveries were made from 2013 to 2015 through the leasing company South American Aircraft Leasing and were financed by the Russian company Ilyushin Finance Co., which acted as the customer of the aircraft.
