The U.K. government has relaxed travel restrictions, which could boost some specific stocks. Announced on Friday, tourists from the U.K. will be able visit 12 countries or territories as of May 17 without having to self-isolate upon return, fueling hopes for a recovery in travel and tourism on a day when two of the biggest companies in the sector posted results. Shares in International Airlines Group (AT:IAG) a group that owns British Airways, Iberia, Aer Lingus, and other airlines, traded more than 2.5% higher on Friday ahead of the government’s announcement, while shares in hotels giant InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) similarly ticked up 1.5%.
