CBX and the Tijuana International Airport work on expansion

TIJUANA – The Cross Border Xpress (CBX), the border bridge that connects Tijuana with the United States, is in the process of being expanded to add 645 square meters, which will allow for the configuration of eight double cabins.

Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico (GAP) is building the Passenger Processing Building to facilitate passenger traffic between Mexico and the United States. Mexican airport authorities expect the work to be completed in December 2022.

The San Diego Union Tribune pointed out that CBX has authorization to build a new parking garage, new hotel rooms, a gas station and department stores. This is the second phase of CBX expansion, after the bridge opened in 2015.

According to the Californian newspaper, a third phase would add 37,000 square meters of industrial buildings, 3,000 more square meters of retail, 170 new hotel rooms and 557 square meters of restaurants.

CBX expects to have an annual passenger flow of seven million passengers by 2036, when all three phases of construction are completed.
