Calculating the Avios points you need

The Avios points you spend on reward flights with Aer Lingus depend on:

  • the route (distance in miles)
  • the date of your flight (peak or off-peak)
  • the fare class (economy or business)
The route is based on mileage, which is grouped into numbered zones:

Zone Miles
1 0 - 650
2 651 - 1151
3 1152 - 2000
4 2001 - 3000
5 3001 - 4000
6 4001 - 5500

(Please note the exceptions of Shannon/Dublin to Boston which are based on Zone 5)
View our calendar for 2017 with peak and off-peak dates detailed for the year. During off-peak periods, which are two thirds of the year, you need less Avios points for your reward flights. When booking reward flights, you can choose all peak dates, all off-peak dates, or a mixture of the two. Peak and off-peak periods vary per airline.
The higher the fare class, the more Avios points are needed. Business/First class flights require the most Avios points.
You have to pay a cash amount for taxes, fees and carrier charges. These vary according to travel date, carrier and the route flown. They are calculated when you book your flights on Avios.com and will be displayed as you make your booking.
