WASHINGTON - The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority will bring $400 million of bonds to market in the next two weeks after postponing deals last fall due to the turmoil in the marketplace in the aftermath of the collapse of Lehman Brothers.

The MWAA will sell in a negotiated deal $235 million of fixed-rate airport system revenue bonds, Series 2009B, today, tomorrow, and Wednesday. The proceeds will finance interest rate swap termination fees, capital improvements, and refund some of the agency's commercial paper.
