ISTANBUL Dec 3 (Reuters) - Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd and Turkey's TAV Havalimanlari Holding are in talks with India's GMR Infrastructure Ltd about buying its 40 percent stake in Turkey's Sabiha Gokcen Airport, sources close to the negotiations said on Tuesday.
Sabiha Gokcen is one of Istanbul's two airports, located on the Asian side of the city, and handled 15.7 million passengers in the first ten months of 2013.
