DUBAI Feb 4 Abu Dhabi's Etihad Airways, close
to a tie-up with India's Jet Airways, expects to
complete due diligence on the deal in the next week, the Gulf
carrier's chief executive said on Monday.
James Hogan made the remarks at a press conference after the
airline reported its annual results, adding that the results
would then be presented to the board.
Hogan said he had met with senior aviation officials and
ministers in India last week in connection with the deal.
The terms of the possible deal have not been disclosed, but
a government source said earlier this month Etihad was in talks
to pick up a 24-percent stake in Jet for up to $330 million.
