Etihad increases stake in Virgin Australia to 19.9%
Etihad Airways confirmed its equity stake in Virgin Australia Holdings had reached 19.9%. This follows a series of on-market purchases of Virgin Australia shares over recent weeks. The Abu Dhabi-based airline now holds more than 515 million shares in its equity partner airline. At 19.9%, Etihad Airways has reached the threshold approved by Australia’s Foreign Investment Review Board in June 2013.
