Fair trade regulator Competition Commission is examining the over Rs 2,000-crore deal between leading carrier Jet Airways and Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways.
However, the Jet-Etihad deal is unlikely to get a go-ahead from the competition watchdog before the end of June. The CCI is likely to seek further clarifications from the two companies.
While the CCI is unlikely to seek clarifications on domestic operations, it would seek clarity on the impact of the deal on international operations specially related to routing arrangements through gulf countries. CCI is also likely to seek more information to ascertain impact on number of airport slots held by various operators.

Most of the merger and acquisition deals require approval from the Commission, which keeps a tab on anti-competitive practices in the market place.
