- The Cuban airline is Cubana de Aviación.
OAO Kuban Airlines (Russian: ОАО «Авиакомпания Кубань») was an airline based in Krasnodar, Russia. It has operated domestic schedules within Russia and international charters. Its main base was Krasnodar International Airport. Its name comes from Kuban Province in southern Russia. On 11 December 2012 Kuban Airlines ceased operations due to financial difficulties.
The root of the airline can be traced back to a division of Aeroflot founded in 1932. It became an independent company in 1992, owned the state (51%) and the airline employees (49%).
In February 2010, Kuban Airlines introduced a new livery to its first Boeing 737-300 aircraft. The new livery is a dark green background with sunflowers running from the back half of the fuselage and up the tail. The engines are also coloured in dark green.
On 18 May 2010, Kuban Airlines announced the receipt of their first of four ordered Boeing 737-300. The airline also announced that beginning in 2011, they will begin to retire their Yakolev aircraft in favour of new Antonov An-148 or Boeing 737-700 aircraft.
