IHG has secured £600 million from the government’s Covid Corporate Financing Facility (CCFF).
It comes after the Bank of England confirmed the hotel giant was eligible for support from the scheme.
EasyJet has already banked £600 million from the CCFF, with Wizz Air and Jet2 parent Dart Group pursuing eligibility.
Virgin Atlantic is understood to be seeking state support, but has not stated whether this would be via the CCFF.
Cash from the CCFF is provided on a commercial basis.
