Jet Airways opts out of Air India’s sell off race

Mumbai, April 10 - Airline major Jet Airways on April 10 said that it will not participate in the divestment process of national carrier Air India.

"We welcome the government move to privatise Air India. It is a bold step.

"However, considering the terms of offer in the information memorandum and based on our review, we are not participating in the process," Amit Agarwal, Deputy CEO and CFO, Jet Airways was quoted in a statement. 

The development assumes significance as it comes days after another airline IndiGo on April 5 had said that it will not bid for Air India under the "current divestiture plans".

Jet Airways had never officially said that it was interested in Air India, but IndiGo had earlier expressed its interest in the acquiring Air India's international operations and Air India Express (AIXL). 

The Central government has invited "Expression of Interest" to off-load 76% stake and management control of the airline.

On April 5, IndiGo's President and Whole Time Director Aditya Ghosh had said: "From day one, IndiGo has expressed its interest primarily in the acquisition of Air India's international operations and Air India Express. However, that option is not available under the government's current divestiture plans for Air India. 

"Also, as we have communicated before, we do not believe that we have the capability to take on the task of acquiring and successfully turning around all of Air India's airline operations," Ghosh said in response to queries from investors regarding IndiGo's involvement in the upcoming divestiture of Air India. 

On March 28, the government issued the Preliminary Information Memorandum (PIM) for the strategic divestment of AI, along with the airline's shares in AIXL and AISATS (Air India SATS Airport Services).
