SEOUL (Reuters) - Korean Air Lines <003490.KS>, the biggest shareholder of Hanjin Shipping <117930.KS>, has approved a plan to provide a loan of 60 billion won ($54.16 million) to the troubled shipper.
The support will be offered on condition of securing Hanjin Shipping's Long Beach Terminal as collateral, Korean Air said.
Hanjin Group has pledged to raise a total of 100 billion won ($90 million) in funds to help rescue cargo that is stranded at sea following the failure of Hanjin Shipping, the world's seventh-largest container carrier.
Out of the 100 billion won, Hanjin Group Chairman Cho Yang-ho will raise 40 billion won from private funds next week.
