Jet Airways (JAI, Mumbai Int'l) is reportedly planning to lease three A330-200(F)s from equity partner Etihad Airways (EY, Abu Dhabi Int'l) ahead of its entry into the dedicated-freight market.

India's Business Standard newspaper says the aircraft will allow Jet to take on rival Emirates (EK, Dubai Int'l) in the India-United Arab Emirates cargo market.

Etihad is currently leasing three B777-300(ER)s from Jet with a fourth due for delivery later this year.
