The latest update will reportedly be adding a host of new content including visual improvements to Portugal and Spain, various new missions and multiple new airports.

Asobo Studio announced through a blog post that the update will now be releasing on Thursday, March 24th. The full statement reads as follows:
In light of recent tragic aviation news, we have made the decision to postpone our release of World Update VIII: Iberia until Thursday, March 24th at 2:00 AM PDT (0900Z). We extend our deepest condolences to those affected by this event.
Stay tuned for the full patch notes when the full update drops and the patch notes go live. Our thoughts and prayers goes to everyone involved with the tragic incident. As of now, no survivors have been found but we hope and pray for the best in this very depressing scenario.
