BERLIN, Dec 22 (Reuters) - Lufthansa has placed a promissory note, bringing it 1.2 billion euros ($1.26 billion) in funding that will be used for general corporate purposes, the airline group said on Thursday.

The note was issued with maturities of five, seven and 10 years, Lufthansa said in a statement. Around 500 million euros of the total has already been received, with the remainder to come in January.

Lufthansa said the transaction proved popular, with a significant share being bought by Asian investors.
