Effective 04/01 there will be 102 direct flights that you can take from NYC with your BA Avios!
British Airways Avios can’t be beat for short-haul nonstop flights thanks to ultra-low award rates, no expedite/close-in fees, and practically free award cancellations. Below are all of the direct flights from NYC that can be booked with Avios.
Be sure to read the British Airways knowledgebase for everything you NEED to know about the BA program. If you have a question it’s probably already been answered there!
-Rates in the chart are for one-way flights.
-Routes that display the airline in bold are subject to fuel surcharges. Routes that display the airline in bold are subject to fuel surcharges, which can vary from $25 (JFK-Vancouver on Cathay Pacific) to several hundred dollars each way.
-In the charts below I’ve only included direct flights as BA charges Avios for each flight segment.
-In other words Tel Aviv isn’t on the chart as BA does not have any partners that fly nonstop from NYC to Tel Aviv. Though you can always fly to Tel Aviv via Berlin or Dusseldorf for 20K for the overseas segment and 10K for the Berlin/Dusseldorf-Tel Aviv segment with no fuel surcharges. It can help to search for NYC-Berlin or Dusseldorf and Berlin or Dusseldorf-Tel Aviv separately.
Effective 03/31 you will be able to fly from NYC-Philadelphia for 4.5K and Philadelphia-Tel Aviv for 30K though the jury is still out on fuel surcharges for that route when using Avios.
-Maui isn’t on the chart as BA does not have any partners that fly nonstop from NYC-Maui. Though you can always fly to Maui via Los Angeles, S. Diego, or Seattle, for 12.5K for the NYC-west coast segment and 12.5K for the West coast-Maui segment with no fuel surcharges. Plus you can stopover in the connecting city for as long or short as you want.
-BA.com does not display availability for all airlines! If you want to book travel on airlines like Alaska, Aer Lingus, and LAN you’ll need to pick up the phone and call BA! You can search Alaska award availability on AA.com before calling BA to book it.
-While the Qantas flight from JFK to Sydney stops in Los Angeles it is considered a direct flight by BA as the flight number remains the same. Therefore they do charge Avios as if it is just 1 flight segment.
-In rare cases connecting flights can be cheaper than nonstop flights when using Avios and I’ve noted that in the chart.
-Cities in the chart may only have seasonal service.
-A dash means that class of service isn’t offered on that route.
