The company says a $9bn (£5.5bn) order for 100 A320 planes from AirAsia will safeguard 1,500 Airbus jobs in the UK and 7,500 in its supply chain.
The wings for its A320 series are made at the Flintshire factory.
AirAsias’s order is for 64 of the A320neo (new engine option) and 36 of the A320ceo (current engine option) aircraft.
Mr Cameron said: “Today’s announcement demonstrates the strength of the UK aerospace sector and the important role it plays it growing and rebalancing our economy”.
“This government will continue to back UK aerospace, cutting business taxes, investing in exports and working in partnership with the industry to ensure it is fully equipped to compete and thrive in the global race.”
