SAN FRANCISCO - San Francisco International Airport Commission plans to come to market with $579 million of fixed-rate revenue bonds today or tomorrow, as it begins to restructure its outstanding auction-rate securities.

The issue - 2008 series C, D, E and F - includes bonds that were delayed in January as the airport assessed the auction market turmoil and the status of the bond insurance industry. The airport considered delaying again because of the weekend fire sale of Bear, Stearns & Co. and the international stock market sell off that followed, but after watching the market yesterday, it decided to go ahead with the deal.
