Airbus will purchase components worth $2bn before 2020, with a further $5bn worth of spending set as a target over the subsequent decade. Both civilian and military aircraft are included in the deal.

Turkey's national carrier, Turkish Airlines, signed a preliminary contract with Airbus last month for the potential order of 25 of its A350-900 aircraft.

"This is our commitment to Airbus," said Demir. "We will talk about business opportunities together.

"The SSM and Airbus have worked together on many successful programs until now and we had many business collaborations with Airbus. It will continue like this in the future."
