Features of the cabin are the comfortable seating of passengers in accordance with international requirements. It is possible to divide the cabin into salons of various classes of service.

The new aircraft is created as a modification of the commercially available IL-96-300 with the addition of a type certificate and will maintain high reliability indicators of its predecessor.
