Akima’s aviation services subsidiary, Akima Logistics Services, has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Air Force to provide C-21 aircraft contractor logistics support services at multiple Air Force bases around the globe.

This single award, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract has a 10-year period of performance and a maximum value of $385 million, if all options are exercised.

The contract underscores the company’s experience providing logistics support for the Air Force, said Scott Rauer, president of Akima’s Facilities Solutions Group.

“This work complements support we provide at the U.S. Air Force Academy and for the USAF Special Aircraft Mission fleet at Andrews Air Force base,” he said. “We are committed to providing the best services for the Air Force that will consistently meet and exceed their requirements.”

The contract was awarded by the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma, and provides for program management, aircraft base and depot maintenance, engine maintenance, modifications and modification support, and deployment support.

Work is to be performed at Scott Air Force Base, Illinois; Ramstein Air Base, Germany, and other U.S. and overseas locations as the mission requires.

All work is expected to be complete by August 2030.
