Is credit report included in a 10 year background check?

I'm applying for a customer service job at the airport with an airline, and I have to pass a 10 year background check. SInce last year only I accumulated some debts and I have collection companies after me to pay them but I can't pay them now since I don't have a job. Am I going to fail the 10 year background check because of that? I have no felonies, clean driving records, no eviction, no drink and drive, no drug or alcohol abuse...Please let me know pelple.
