India's Kingfisher denies report of stake sale to Etihad
MUMBAI Dec 11 (Reuters) - India's debt-laden Kingfisher Airlines has denied a newspaper report that it had reached an agreement on selling a 48 percent stake to Etihad Airways.
Kingfisher is in discussion with various investors, including Etihad, for equity investments in the company, but matters are merely at negotiation stages, it said in a statement to the stock exchange.
India changed its Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) policy in September to allow foreign carriers to buy stakes of up to 49 percent in domestic airlines, a move seen as a potential boon for its struggling domestic aviation sector. (Reporting by Prashant Mehra; Editing by Anand Basu)
