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. 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. The C-40As — which provide long-range, high-priority logistical airlift in support of fleet activities — have begun replacing the aging fleet of C-9 aircraft flown by the Naval Air Reserve.

There are currently 12 C-40A in inventory with a planned inventory of 17 aircrafts.
