Must indicate that the Cuban airlines are state and they are able to change airplanes according to the needs from one to another and vice versa, and these are frequent.  Besides that Aerogaviota and Aerotaxi use also equipment of the Fuerza Aérea Revolucionaria (FAR).  AeroCaribbean is today a Cuban-Canadian company. The description of these airplanes in Cuba can be seen in the equipment page.
