Perhaps this situation can be endured if it is part of daily life and there is no other option. Now, let’s imagine traveling to Mexico for vacation or to visit family or friends. Having to endure a border crossing experience with these characteristics is not ideal, and it pushes us to seek other alternatives.
Traveling within Mexico cuts down on airline fees and taxes
Flying from Los Angeles or San Diego to a destination in Mexico can be inconvenient for several reasons: access to the Los Angeles Airport is complicated due to traffic; and the frequency and amount of direct flights offered by both airports is limited.
Tijuana International Airport has the second highest connectivity in Mexico
Considering that the Tijuana International Airport has the second highest connectivity in the country - it offers 34% more flight frequency that the Los Angeles Airport, flies to more than 30 destinations in Mexico, soon flying to all the beaches in the country, and the airfare is up to 40% cheaper - the possibility of traveling from Tijuana increases.
If we add to these advantages that Cross Border Xpress, a terminal located in San Diego, California connected to the Tijuana airport through a pedestrian bridge, first opened in December 2015, the idea of traveling to Mexico and returning to the United States quickly, comfortably, and without the need to cross through the regular gates becomes a reality.
Cross Border Xpress Services
Cross Border Xpress, better known as CBX, is for the exclusive use of Tijuana airport passengers. Using the bridge requires a crossing ticket, boarding pass, and valid official documents both to cross north to the United States and south to Mexico.
