The new aircraft (MSN 5790), which is powered by CFM International CFM56-5B3/3 engines, was delivered on 4 November.
It follows the delivery of two new A321s in September and financed under similar purchase and leaseback deals by the leasing company.
Another two aircraft are expected to close by the end of this year, according to GTLK Europe.
The A321s are financed with debt provided by the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, according to a source.
