You can view a list of current events from the Pocket Planes menu.

Every so often Nimble Bit releases an update to Pocket Planes, usually fixing bugs.

If you have reached your maximum number of airports (which can be seen in the Stats screen in the Pocket Planes menu), you will need to close one of your existing airports before you can open the airport in the event city.

If you don't have any airports near the event city, you might also need to open airports nearby.

On the Flight Crew screen, under "Global Event", it lists the event city where you will need to deliver cargo and passengers in order to participate in the global event.

If you don't have an airport in the city, you will have to spend the coins to open an airport there before you can participate in the global event.
