NEWS| Air India writes to Ministry expressing concern over proposed Jet-Etihad deal


In a move that could generate more controversy for the proposed Jet Airways-Etihad deal, Air India has written to the Ministry of Civil Aviation saying that allowing the deal to go through could affect the overall complexion of international air passenger flow to and from India.

Government sources told Business Line that while the letter does not mention Etihad by name, it does point out that if the West Asian carrier picks up a majority stake in Jet Airways, most of the decisions about Jet’s future plans are likely to be driven by the foreign carrier.
Air India’s communication adds that allowing the deal in the current shape could also have an adverse impact on Air India’s prospects as the airline currently operates non-stop flights from India to London, Paris and Frankfurt.
