CHICAGO – Moody’s Investors Service affirmed Midway International Airport’s single-A level ratings Tuesday and said it should not see a significant credit impact from Chicago’s effort to privatize the airfield, which served a record number of passengers last year.

The agency rates the 85-year-old airport’s first lien revenue bonds A2 and the second lien bonds A3. A stable outlook is assigned to the airport’s $1.4 billion of outstanding debt, which would be retired if the city opts to lease the airport.
