In a statement, a Jet spokeswoman calls media reports on the deal "incorrect and speculative", declining to elaborate.

Etihad has been in talks to buy a 24 percent stake in Jet, Indian government sources have said previously.

Jet shares ended down 2.7 per cent (at Rs 559.15 on Bombay Stock Exchange).
