Airline shares up on hopes of FDI by foreign carriers
Mumbai: Shares of Indian carriers surged in early trades on Wednesday, after the aviation ministry said it would recommend that the government allow foreign airlines to buy stakes of up to 49 percent in Indian airlines.

At early trade, Jet Airways was up 6.22 percent at Rs 249.55, Kingfisher Airlines up 5.98 percent at Rs 26.60 and SpiceJet up 7.38 percent at Rs 24.

India currently bars foreign airlines from buying into Indian carriers, although foreign investors are allowed to hold a cumulative 49 percent.

India's loss-making airlines are grappling with high jet fuel prices, low fares, and an economic slowdown. A government decision that is widely expected to open up the sector to foreign carriers would be a lifeline to domestic carriers.
