WICHITA (BNS): Boeing has received a C-40A Contractor Logistics Support (CLS) contract from the US Navy. The five-year contract is valued at more than $100 million.

The C-40A is a military version of the Boeing 737-700C that is designed to be a workhorse to support Navy operations worldwide.

The aircraft has three configurations - an all-passenger configuration that can carry 121 passengers, an all-cargo configuration that holds eight cargo pallets, and a combi configuration that carries three cargo pallets and 70 passengers, a company statement said.

The C-40A CLS contract supports the Navy's fleet of nine aircraft currently in service. Boeing is on contract to deliver three more C-40As, which are scheduled to enter service in 2010 and 2011.

This effort is in addition to the current support Boeing provides to the C-40A, including sustaining engineering, winglet modifications, and other emergent needs.

Global Transport & Executive Systems (GTES) supports all Boeing aircraft in the US Air Force's executive fleet, including the C-40B, C-40C, and C-32A. It also supports the Navy's E-6B and the National Command Authority's E-4B.
