India's Bird Group says keen to buy Air India's ground handling unit

NEW DELHI, Aug 30 (Reuters) - India’s Bird Group on Wednesday said it is interested in buying state-owned Air India’s ground handling business and has expressed its intent to the civil aviation ministry, the company said in a statement on Wednesday.

Bird Group, which handles ground services at several Indian airports and also operates hotels in the United Kingdom, is the second company to formally make a bid for a part of the loss-making carrier weeks after it was put up for sale. (Reporting by Aditi Shah; Editing by Malini Menon)
