KBRA Releases Research ? 2024 Public Finance Sector Outlook: U.S. Airports Navigate Strong Post-Pandemic Landing


KBRA releases its 2024 Public Finance Sector Outlook with a special focus on the U.S. airport sector.

KBRA believes the U.S. airport sector has successfully weathered the COVID-19 pandemic and the accompanying sharp decrease in passenger activity that began in March 2020. The combination of generally robust pre-pandemic balance sheet resources, federal recovery payments together with expenditure reductions, as well as support of airlines/concessionaires all contributed to financial stability. Also crucial were cost recovery mechanisms embedded in airline use and lease agreements that ensured coverage of debt service requirements. Significant federal aid (~$18.5 billion) was provided to airport operators as economic assistance to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the pandemic and to offset the loss of revenues.
