Spanish Missions Reorganization

We've just learned that in July they'll be realigning the boundaries of the Spanish missions. There will no longer be a "Bilbao Mission." Its area will be shared between the Madrid Mission and the Barcelona Mission. Madrid will lose La Mancha district to the south, but will gain the Canary Islands (currently in the Malaga Mission). The Madrid Mission will extend from the northwest corner of Spain to just south of Madrid, plus the Canary Islands. While Madrid is not the closest mission geographically to the islands, that is where the most flights depart from.
