Qatar Airways’ proposal would be allowed only after proper examination: Aviation secy

The government today said any proposal by Qatar Airways for FDI would be allowed only after proper examination, said a top government official today.

“In general, we welcome FDI. As far as a specific proposal is concerned that proposal has to follow the approval route.. I can not predict that. The government process will examine,” aviation Secretary R N Choubey told reporters today in response to whether a foreign airline with an investment partner can own 100 per cent of an airline in India

Recently, Qatar Airways had announced that they would launch an airline in India, with 49 per cent investment from Qatar Airways and the rest from a Qatari investment authority.
