Third-party developers have revealed news about upcoming add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator and released two airports. 

We start with Blue Bird Simulations, which released new images of the model in the works for the Boeing 757, specifically the version with Pratt & Whitney PW2000 engines. We also hear that it'll have its own sound set and engine tuning.

Next, Almería Airport (LEAM) in Spain is now complete according to developer TDM Scenery Design. It's now in testing and will hopefully release it within February. 

Moving on to releases, SimPort released Porto Santo Airport (LPPS) on the Portuguese island of the Madeira archipelago. Incidentally, Porto Santo is included in the Vessels Madeira add-on released a few days ago by SeaFront Simulations, so this airport pairs well with it.

While less relevant than the main Madeira airport, it still hosts multiple scheduled passenger flights including plenty of seasonal ones.

You can purchase it on Simmarket for $13.67 plus applicable VAT.

The next airport release is Interlaken Airbase (LSMI) by Spinoza. It's a small airport in Switzerland, including the Rega 10 mountain rescue base and the nearby Jungfrau Amusement part. 

It's currently available on Simmarket for $14.11 plus applicable VAT.
