Tuesday, November 17 from 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EST
Across the industry, airports are positioning themselves for recovery from the drop in both traffic levels and enplanements due to COVID-19. As a result of this, airports are experiencing uncertainty with their current and future bond ratings.
The Rating Agency Webinar will provide an opportunity for all four credit rating agencies, i.e. Fitch, Kroll, Moody’s, and S&P to share their views on the financial health of the U.S. and Canadian airport industry. Other topics we will explore include the rating agency’s views on what the shape of the recovery curve looks like, recent credit actions, and strategies to enhance airport credit rating.
Some airports have received a down grade in their ratings and would like to know how to prevent this from occurring in the future. Due to the unprecedented nature of COVID-19 you may be interested in knowing how the rating agencies consider COVID-19 in their rating process.
These are a few issues that will be addressed at the Rating Agency Webinar. Come prepared to engage the rating agency representatives as we explore how to maintain or improve the credit ratings for your airport.
