Moody’s upgrades outlook for Indianapolis Airport Authority

Moody’s Investors Service has raised its outlook of the Indianapolis Airport Authority to “stable” from “negative.”

But Moody’s cited several uplifting factors at Indianapolis, including solid agreements with airlines through 2015, the FedEx cargo sorting facility, and a diverse carrier mix.
