Is there a short form for word Available as in qty for Quantity? I do not even think that "short from" is the right word for what I'm after. If that's so then what is this form called? Shorthand maybe?

    The only abbreviation for 'Available' that I would instantly recognise correctly in all contexts is "Avail."

Is there a short form for [the] word Available as in qty for Quantity?

No, there is no established abbreviation for "available" like "qty", however depending on the context of whatever you're writing, you could probably use Av (for Available) and NA (for Not Available - it also means Not Applicable).
