An Easy Way to See Where You Can Go With British Airways Avios Points

First, I must say, I love maps!  So I am very biased in favor of this free tool that quickly shows where you can fly with British Airways Avios points!

The visual map tool by Wandering Aramean makes it much easier to figure out how many British Airways Avios points you’ll need for a short-haul, nonstop award flight.
