In addition, top ten placings were achieved in the ‘Best First Class Airline Seat’ and ‘Best Business Class Airline Lounge’ and ‘Best Airline in the Middle East’ categories, it added.
Commenting on the award, Pearce said, 'Winning Best Business Class Seat in the World for the second consecutive year is an outstanding accolade, as is being nominated in so many other categories, and I would like to thank the World Airline Awards and all those who voted for Oman Air.'
