Defence giant BAE Systems has won a £2.5 billion deal to sell 20 aircraft to Oman, helping to sustain thousands of jobs in the UK, according to MSN News.

The contract for 12 Typhoon and eight Hawk aircraft was welcomed by Prime Minister David Cameron, who will visit the Middle Eastern state later.

BAE said it is an important export contract and supports its strategy to grow international markets and export business.

The aircraft will be built in the UK and will help to sustain 6,000 high technology and engineering jobs across sites in Warton, Lancashire; Samlesbury, Lancashire; and Brough, East Yorkshire. Aircraft manufacture will begin in 2014 with delivery expected in 2017.

Guy Griffiths, group managing director for BAE Systems' International business, said: "Receiving this contract is an honour and is excellent news for both BAE Systems and the Eurofighter Typhoon consortium. BAE Systems has a long history of working in Oman and we are delighted this contract will enable us to continue to work together.

Business Secretary Vince Cable said: "This is obviously a very good day for BAE Systems, its suppliers and the broader Eurofighter supply chain. The Typhoon programme supports an estimated 8,600 jobs across BAE Systems, Rolls-Royce and Selex-Galileo and their supply chains, with an estimated further 1,500 jobs dependent on export opportunities.
