Apart from Tata Group, Air India likely to get more bidders as Jet Airways and SpiceJet reportedly will join the race to buy the national carrier. Quoting government sources, a report in the Times of India stated, “The economics of the game will change completely for whichever airline gets Air India. With its 14% domestic and 17-18% international market share, getting AI will be a paradigm shift for the successful bidder. Other airlines like Jet and possibly even SpiceJet will have no option but to bid for Air India”.However, a SpiceJet spokesperson told the newspaper that their airlines is too small to bid for state owned Air India. While in case of Jet Airways, a top source had confirmed that they are contemplating the decision to go on for bidding.
