Airbus Group SE reported it booked 121 additional jetliner orders in September, bringing its net bookings for the first nine months to 815 planes.

Order intake last month included a deal for 110 A321neo jetliners from east European budget airline Wizz Air Holdings PLC and four additional narrowbody commitments from Croatia Airlines. The Toulouse-based planemaker also secured orders for six A330 widebody jets, one A350-900 long-range plane.

The European manufacturer also said it suffered 14 single-aisle order cancellations last month, bringing its total so far this year to 60 jetliner orders annulled.

Airbus leads Boeing in order bookings so far this year. Its Chicago-based rival last week said it had secured net orders for 449 planes through September 29.

Boeing, the world’s largest jetliner maker, is ahead of Airbus on deliveries, though. The U.S. planemaker shipped 503 planes in the first eight months. Airbus, in its monthly update on business, said it had delivered 446 planes in the first nine months after shipping 49 units in September.
