Global Events

Global Events usually occur in everybody's game at the same time. To participate in these events, you must have a Game Center account, good wifi, and send a job to the event location. These jobs will be visible after buying the airport where the event is located. The jobs will be easy to find as they have a special icon and they are highlighted in blue.

Participating in these events increases their participation counter and makes the player eligible to win a prize. You must send at least 50 jobs to receive a prize. The more jobs you send, the better your prize is, so it is strategic to team up with others in the Flight Crew menu.

Global events usually are for 3 days and 12 hours, but not always If there is a delay.

Local Events

All of the other events in the Events tab are only happening to the player. They do not interact with other players and they do not count towards the Flight Crew Event participation counter. Each regular event always ends at 6pm or 6am.

Regular Events

Regular Events are multiple events that happen at the same time, such as competitions, conventions, parties, tournaments, and festivals. In total, there are 44 possible Regular Events. Regular Events are listed in white in the events menu. Sending jobs to these events will start a count in the check mark tab. In that tab you can see events you have participated in and your progress in the event. Each event has 1000 jobs that needs to be sent.

Until v1.0.3, there was no prize for completing regular events, which made them undesirable to complete. However, in v1.0.4, regular events now give a 15 bux prize when completed.

After the event is over, it is possible that the same event will happen again, but in a different location. Even though it is in a different location, it is still counted in your progress.
