Tail Winds , which owned almost 80 percent of Jet before the deal, will sell shares to Naresh Goyal and other investors to comply with a rule that requires companies to have a minimum 25 percent public shareholding.

Abu Dhabi's Etihad Airways agreed last week to acquire a 24 percent stake in India's No. 1 carrier, giving it a bigger foothold in the fast-growing aviation market.
