Airports may benefit from U.S. move to block airline merger: Fitch
The U.S. government’s lawsuit to block a proposed merger between US Airways Group and American Airlines could be “marginally positive” for airports if the move heralds the end of an industry-wide consolidation trend, Fitch Ratings said. If consolidation wanes, “airports will generally benefit as more carriers and competition increase the routes and require more services,” Fitch said in a statement. Small, regional airports stand to benefit the most because they are at greater risk of airline service cutbacks after large carriers merge.
