India's SpiceJet says foreign carriers interested to buy stake in company
NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Indian budget carrier SpiceJet Ltd (SPJT.BO) said on Monday that some foreign investors have expressed interests to pick up a stake in the company following a recent rule change, but it was premature to comment on a possible deal.
