The Ilyushin Il-114 is a Russian airliner that first flew in 1990. Initially, orders for the aircraft have been slow, but during the 2007 MAKS Airshow Ilyushin announced the signing of a contract with Venezuela for a large purchase of 98 planes. However, according to Agence France-Presse, the state company Rosoboronexport, which has the monopoly for the export of arms of that country, denied participating in such an agreement. Current operators are Vyborg Airlines in Russia and Uzbekistan Airways in Uzbekistan. Vyborg Airlines (www.aviavyborg.ru) took delivery of an Ilyushin 114 at MAKS 2005.

The Il-114 is a twin-engine turboprop for local routes in the Antonov An-24 class. Altogether, 15 planes have been built.
