Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Full list of British Airways Avios redemption pricing by route

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

It is surprisingly tricky to find out how many Avios are required for a particular route.  You need to go to ba.com, track down the ‘Avios Spending Calculator’ page and then type in your destination and preferred travel class.  It is a bit of a drag.

This table should simplify the process.  It lists BA destinations alphabetically with pricing to / from London.  Prices are one-way.

All routes in Zone 4+ have World Traveller Plus and First Class prices included, although in reality not all of these routes currently have First.  Some Moscow services currently have First Class and World Traveller Plus even though they are in Zone 3 and technically short-haul, although this is changing.

I will add a link to this article to the ‘Favourites’ page.

If you are reading this on a mobile phone, the table is likely to look a mess.  I recommend you use a desktop or tablet instead.

Key:

  • ET/WT = Eurotraveller / World Traveller (short-haul economy and long-haul economy)
  • WTP = World Traveller Plus (long-haul premium economy)
  • CE/CW = Club Europe / Club World (short-haul business and long-haul business)
Pricing is one-way
