SHANGHAI (Reuters) – Hainan Airlines, the flagship airline of embarrassed Chinese conglomerate HNA Group, soared 5% on Monday after announcing an update on its restructuring program.
China’s HNA Group will receive a strategic investment of 38 billion yuan ($5.9 billion) after the restructuring and will invest in 11 entities, including major airline Hainan Airlines, sources told Reuters on Monday.
Hainan Airlines said in another statement on Monday that it would use funds from strategic investors and future operating profits to pay down its debt.
