NEW YORK -- Delta Air Lines (DAL) has reached out to Singapore Airlines (SINGY) about purchasing the Asian carrier's 49% stake in Virgin Atlantic Airways, according to reports.

Delta made a "secret approach" to Singapore Airlines, offering to buy out its stake in Virgin, The Sunday Times reported, without naming sources. The Wall Street Journal also reported Sunday that Delta had approached Singapore Airlines about purchasing its stake in Virgin Atlantic.

If Delta is successful in the purchase, its European partner Air France-KLM could buy part of Sir Richard Branson's 51% stake in Virgin Atlantic, The Sunday Times added.

Singapore Airlines confirmed Monday it was in talks to sell its stake in Virgin Atlantic.
