Boeing Co. said its deliveries of commercial airplanes rose 7% for the third quarter amid continued growth for its 787 Dreamliner and its best-selling 737 single-aisle jetliner.

The aerospace and defense company delivered 199 commercial aircraft in the latest quarter, compared with 186 a year earlier.

The world’s largest jetliner maker has continued to enjoy strong demand for its fuel-efficient jetliners despite falling oil prices. The company and rival Airbus Group SE have been vying to build market share by building planes faster and more efficiently than the other.

So far this year, Boeing is ahead of Airbus on deliveries, though. The U.S. plane maker shipped 580 planes in the first nine months of 2015. Earlier on Monday, Airbus reported that it had delivered 446 planes in the first nine months of this year after shipping 49 units in September.

Boeing reported that third-quarter shipments of its 787 Dreamliners rose to 37 from 31 a year earlier, while shipments of its 737 jets grew to 126 from 120.
