Website showing airports within radius
Given that many award charts are based on distance from origin airport, is there any websites/tools that allow us to search for airports within a specified radius (e.g. 3,000 miles) from a specific airport?
For example, I would like to know what are the airports within 3,000 miles of say, HKG. Seems like you can do it through gcmap by putting in [email protected], it does show a map with radius, but without indicating the airports inside that radius.
Any help would be appreciated and would be very useful for searching for destinations to go given a specific award chart distance.
Not that I know of. When I made the avios maps after US Airways joined oneworld I had to enter the airport codes by hand after looking at the list of routes. It didn’t take as long as it sounds like it would though!
If you use your own suggestion (gcmap) and look at it side-by-side with Google Flights Explore screen, you should get a good idea of where the airports are. As you can see here, all the airports are red dots
