Boeing is being awarded $152.5 million modification contract for the procurement of two C-40A aircraft in support of the US Navy. 

Work is expected to be completed in September 2019, US Department of Defense said in a statement Wednesday.

The C-40A, a derivative of the Boeing 737-700C commercial airliner, is the newest commercial derivative medium lift aircraft used for Navy Unique Fleet Essential Airlift missions that provide critical logistics support to fleet forces.

The C-40A is certified to operate in three configurations: an all-passenger configuration that can carry 121 passengers, an all-cargo configuration of eight cargo pallets, or a combination of three cargo pallets and 70 passengers. The C-40A has a state-of-the-art flight deck, avionics system and engines that are Stage III noise-compliant and certified for extended over-water operations.
