British Airways Caribbean Hopper Routes on Avios

British Airways Avios are great awards for short flights and they have a few Caribbean island hopper routes that are useful in a region with expensive airfares and unreliable airlines.

These routes seem to be regularly in flux, here is what I can find as currently operating. One-way Avios prices (economy/premium economy/business) are given with taxes and fees, which are $8 higher for business class across the board. No first class on these routes.

These are typically several times a week so schedules may not always line up for what you need.

BA Avios NAS-GCM
There are massive taxes and fees in many parts of the Caribbean, so total cost is not necessarily cheaper than revenue tickets on BA or competitors.

  • Nassau (NAS) – Grand Cayman (GCM), 4500/6750/9000 + $108-$116
  • Grand Cayman (GCM) – Nassau (NAS), 4500/6750/9000 + $96-$104

 

  • Nassau (NAS) – Providenciales (PLS), 4500/6750/9000 + $108-$116 ends March 22, 2015
  • Providenciales (PLS) – Nassau (NAS), 4500/6750/9000 + $102-$110 ends March 22, 2015

 

  • Antigua (ANU) – Providenciales (PLS),  begins March 29, 2015, not yet loaded in system for award tickets

 

  • Antigua (ANU) – St Kitts (SKB), 4500/6750 /9000 + $106-$114 (the SKB-ANU return flights exists but is not bookable online and may not be bookable as a standalone at all)

 

  • Grenada (GND) – St Lucia (UVF), 4500/6750/9000 + $76-$84
  • St Lucia (UVF) – Grenada (GND), 4500/6750/9000 + $77-$85

 

  • Port of Spain (POS) – St Lucia (UVF), 4500/6750/9000 + $80-$88
  • St Lucia (UVF) – Port of Spain (POS), 4500/6750/9000 + $62-$70

Any idea how to connect an island hopping trip involving Grand Cayman, Nassau, Providenciales, with Port of Spain, Grenada, and St. Lucia. Obviously this can be accomplished by adding a leg to the US, but is there any way to connect them without leaving the Carib?

Thanks for the helpful post, it is too bad that the taxes and fees on these award flights are so expensive. I guess there’s no way around that is there?

Interesting but the taxes and fees are a killer. I’m too lazy to look right this minute but I wonder if there is any tax and/or fee advantage to fly BA from one of the British territories to LHR? Hmmmm. Doubt it and likely the companion tickets wouldn’t work from there either, just guessing.

Yes there is a way around that – Once you have spent/earned avios it costs 27.50 each way…

This is a really timely post. I just came back from the Caribbean, visiting the French islands and the Guianas. I relied on Air France and Caribbean Airlines and avoided LIAT at all cost. Of course Air France decided to take a two week vacation. However Caribbean Airlines and Air Caraibes were both solid. I also cut out one island because I read that ferries were unreliable. I have to say I am agreeing with you about the Caribbean being pricey without necessarily offering something special. Coincidentally I have been thinking south east Asia as well because once you get… Read more »

I have found that the taxes that are shown when searching on the BA site are sometimes much higher than what they are actually. Once I get to the purchase stage, they can drop csignificantly. You need to really drill down to find the actual taxes for a flight.
