The outlook for the U.S. airport sector is stable as Moody's Investors Service expects the airports to maintain the measured performance and financial gains they've achieved over the last year. Moody's outlook on the airports had been negative since 2008.

"The projected modest economic growth in the US and global economies should support enplanement and subsequent revenue increases, although the modest growth also exposes the airlines to downside risks," says Moody's Analyst Earl Heffintrayer, the lead author of the report "US Airports: Stable Outlook But Exposure to Downside Risks Linger."
