LONDON (Reuters) – European travel stocks soared on Tuesday amid reports Spain and Germany would ease travel restrictions, and no noticeable increase in infections were reported during the reopening of businesses after a two-month lockdown.
The German government wants to end a travel warning for tourist trips to 31 European countries from June 15 if the coronavirus situation allows, the dpa new agency reported, according to the magazine Focus. Spain urged foreign holiday-makers to return from July.
After a long holiday weekend, London-listed stocks were playing catch-up with continental European stocks which soared on Monday. The travel and leisure stocks sub-index jumped to its highest levels since April 30.
