Air Transportation Contracts

The Postal Service transports more than 7 million pounds of mail daily using air carriers certified to conduct operations under 14 CFR Parts 121 and 135. Air transportation suppliers range in size from large, well-known passenger airlines and cargo integrators to small owner-operators. Our suppliers move mail between nearly all of the nation’s largest airports. Most air transportation and air transportation-related contracts are procured by the Air Transportation Category Management Center (CMC) at Postal Service Headquarters in Washington, DC.
