MUMBAI (Reuters) - Shares in Jet Airways(JET.NS) rose over 7 percent on a report in Mint newspaper that the airline will soon seek regulatory approval to tweak its ownership pattern to facilitate a stake sale to Etihad Airways.

Rival SpiceJet Ltd (SPJT.BO) shares were also up 6 percent.
Jet Airways and SpiceJet, battling hot competition and high operating costs, are in talks to sell minority stakes to foreign investors, said a senior Indian government official with knowledge of the discussions.
