Boeing will modernize a pair of presidential aircraft for the government of India under a $94 million contract from the U.S. Air Force.
The defense contractor will integrate and install aircraft modernization technology into two Boeing 777 aircraft operated by the Indian air force as part of the sole-source award, the Department of Defense said Thursday.
Work will occur in Oklahoma and Arkansas and is expected to conclude by Nov. 9, 2027.
The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center is obligating $78.3 million in the service branch’s fiscal 2023 foreign military sale budget.
The custom-made Boeing 777 planes with large aircraft infrared countermeasures self-protection suites were delivered to India in 2020 to fly the Indian president, vice president and prime minister.
