Bridge to U.S. Makes Tijuana's Airport Truly International

To meet demand from passengers seeking an alternative to San Diego's small airport, and circumvent the traffic crunch at two nearby border crossings, Tijuana's international airport will provide direct access from the United States.

"Next year, if all goes according to plan, air travelers in this region will be able to park their cars in the United States and walk across an enclosed 325-foot passageway directly to Tijuana International," reports Billy Witz. A public-private partnership being led by real estate magnate Sam Zell is planning to build structures for processing, administrative offices and parking on the U.S. side of the border, and will also construct a bridge connecting directly to Tijuana's airport. 

"The bridge would operate like any of the six other border crossings in California, said Jackie Wasiluk, a spokeswoman for Customs and Border Protection, except that an airline ticket would be required to pass through it," notes Witz. "The project would make Tijuana International a rare airport that would let passengers land in one country and leave in another."
