Etihad Airways skips Jet Airways bidding

PUNIT PARANJPE / AFP

Bidding on India's grounded carrier closed on Saturday evening, after a one-week extension.

Etihad Airways has passed on the opportunity to increase its stake in India's Jet Airways.

The UAE's national carrier owns a 24 per cent stake in the insolvent airline.

"The process is being managed by the resolution professional. We have no comment at this time," read a statement from Etihad.

Administrators say they received three expressions of interest - two from financial institutions and one from an international aviation player.

The bids will be evaluated and administrators will provide a list of eligible applicants by Tuesday.
