-A Monitor Report
New Delhi : The Indian government has said Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways is in the final stages of talks to buy part of either Jet Airways or grounded rival Kingfisher Airline.
"Etihad has not yet decided. They are talking to both," said a government official, declining to be named as the negotiations are confidential.
A deal, which the official said could be announced by next week, would be the first since the Indian government relaxed ownership rules in September to allow foreign airlines to invest up to 49 per cent in a domestic carrier.
