Virgin Blue wins best airline award

Australian-based airline Virgin Blue has been named best low-cost airline of the year at an international airline industry awards night.

The OAG Airline of The Year Awards in London recognise excellence in aviation, both in the air and on the ground.

The airline took out the award for the second year running, beating other nominated low cost carriers, US-based Southwest and the UK's easyJet.

Airlines are judged by frequent travellers on a range of factors, including operational efficiency, polished service and providing travellers with an enjoyable and positive travel experience.

Virgin Blue chief executive Brett Godfrey said the company was honoured to have won the award again.

"This is an extremely prestigious accolade for Virgin Blue and to be recognised within this global arena is a great privilege," Mr Godfrey said.

Is this just in AU? Or Worldwide?
