The studio is going to be producing between 50 and 60 new points of interest and new procedural buildings, as well as improving the game's existing British airports such as Manchester Barton and Liverpool EGGP. Naturally, the update will also feature new landing challenges and more.

Asobo also confirmed that the title will also be getting VR support in an update coming on December 22. The UK-focused World Update, meanwhile, is currently aiming for a launch around January 26.
