Avios is the rewards currency used by British Airways, Iberia and Aer Lingus. Because all three award charts are distance based, you’ll find good deals on shorter flights. British Airways Avios points are especially handy for booking short hops on partner American Airlines within the US and flights to Hawaii from the West Coast on AA or Alaska Airlines.
