Mumbai: Shares in India’s Jet Airways India Ltd rose as much as 6% on Thursday, a day after a senior government source told reporters the carrier was the front-runner to win an investment from Etihad Airways.

Jet Airways India Ltd was up 5.2% as of 09:30 am.
However, shares of Kingfisher Airlines Ltd, which had been vying with Jet to win the Etihad investment, fell 2.6%.
