The update allows players to explore coastal nooks of the Mediterranean and Atlantic, the heights of the Pyrenees, and the legendary architecture of Lisbon and Madrid. The update allows players to fly by some incredible monuments such as the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia. There are other cities that will be added with the update such as Valencia and Seville.

The update also includes four handcrafted airports, 99 custom points of interest, and 13 new activities: four bush trips, four fresh discovery flights, and five new landing challenges.  The update will also include another ‘local legend’ aircraft, the Dornier Do J Wal.

All of this and more will be available for fliers to go through for free today. After Iberia, four more world updates are scheduled for release in 2022.
