Jet Airways shares surge on report of stake sale

Shares in Jet Airways rose over 7 per cent on a report in a business newspaper that the airline will soon seek regulatory approval to tweak its ownership pattern to facilitate a stake sale to Etihad Airways.

The gains on Monday come on the back of a 57 per cent rise in the carrier's shares in November on speculation over a deal with Etihad Airways.

Rival SpiceJet Ltd shares were also up 6 per cent.

Jet Airways and SpiceJet, battling hot competition and high operating costs, are in talks to sell minority stakes to foreign investors, said a senior Indian government official with knowledge of the discussions.
