Hartsfield-Jackson in the news
The Airport’s positive news from credit rating agency Fitch Inc. was reported by Business Wire and Aviation News in late October. Fitch reaffirmed high ratings on outstanding bonds and issued high ratings on new bonds, while calling the bond outlook stable.
The bonds will be used to finance the Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal, which also made the news early in October.
