Jet Airways is interested in the sale of loss making national carrier Air India, said chairman Naresh Goyal.
"We are focusing completely on our own business. That does not meant we will not look at Air India. We will always look at the best approach for us and for the country and take decisions accordingly," Goyal told Bloomberg in an interview.
Jet airways' comments came at a time when Indigo, the only airline which has shown interest publicly in buying the parts of Air India, stated that it is not eager on the airline, which has been placed on the block after a taxpayer-funded bailout did not stem losses.
The plan to privatize Air India is a brave and good decision for India, he said.
The government, while proposing to sell 76% of Air India and 100% of Air India Express also plans to sell half of the ground-handling subsidiary separately.
Singapore Airlines Ltd and Tata Group, which runs a joint venture called Vistara are open to a deal with Air India.
