The article focuses on investment in the airport industry. Even as the financial problems of many of the nation's airlines continue to make headlines, the airport industry itself retains a solid credit position. The airport has been committed to discount airlines since it first lured Southwest in 1989, and its business plan is built around having low enplanement fees. It's something that will become more important as the low-fare, low-cost carriers grow and the legacy carriers cut costs to stay in business.
