Virgin Blue Holdings Ltd's Middle East airline partner Etihad Airways has been named "world's leading airline" for the second year running.

Etihad received the gong at the World Travel Awards in London.

The seven-year-old airline was also named "world's best first class" for the third consecutive year.

Etihad and Virgin Blue received preliminary approval from Australia's competition regulator in September to cooperate on pricing, scheduling and offer reciprocal frequent flyer arrangements and lounge access.

Virgin Blue's long-haul offshoot V Australia has started offering codeshare flights to Europe, the Middle East and Africa via Etihad's Abu Dhabi hub.

V Australia was scheduled to start a thrice-weekly service between Sydney and Abu Dhabi from February next year.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) was expected to deliver a final decision on the proposed tie-up before the end of the year.

The awards were based on the online votes of 185,000 industry professionals and consumers.

Among the other awards, Air New Zealand was named Australasia's leading airline, while Sydney Airport was named the region's leading airport.
