The arrangement between the UK and China was welcomed by Chancellor George Osborne on a visit to the Broughton, near Chester.
100,000 jobs around the UK rely on the success of Airbus, he said.

European aerospace giant Airbus, which has a factory in Broughton, has warned of job losses and "huge" economic risks if Britain votes to leave the European Union in a referendum to be held by 2017.
A decision to quit the EU would raise doubts about Airbus's long-term future investments in the country, according to President of Airbus Group UK, Paul Kahn. Airbus employs 16,000 people in the UK.
Mr Kahn added that the long-term economic risks of a potential British exit were "huge".
