Jet, Etihad talks are on: Ajit SinghNew Delhi, Jan 31 - Talks between Jet Airways and the Abu Dhabi based Etihad Airways are on, Civil Aviation Minister Ajit Singh said here Thursday, adding that there was no problem in concluding a stake sale deed between the two airlines.

"This is a very good move... that Jet and Etihad are talking about a deal. Our concern is that the aviation sector in India should grow and that the competition should also grow. I do not see any problem in this deal if they fulfil all the regulatory requirements," Ajit Singh told reporters at his residence after meeting a delegation comprising members of both airlines.
