The Regional Airport Authority of Louisville and Jefferson County in Kentucky is readying a 152 million dollar insured revenue bond deal for May 7, 2003. Despite the instability in the airline sector, officials expect the deal to go well because Louisville International Airport benefits from being the world headquarters for United Parcel Service, and its dominant passenger carrier is Southwest Airlines, the highly successful discount airline. There have been several sizable airport deals, including 1.6 billion dollars sold by the Dallas-Forth Worth International Airport Board in last week of April 2003. The week before, the city and county of Denver sold 161 million dollars of debt for Denver International Airport.
