Cross Border Xpress: A One of a Kind Landmark Project
After decades of discussion, years of negotiation and months of construction, the Cross Border Xpress (CBX) is finally a reality and it is changing how people cross the US/Mexico Border. Learn about the journey to reality, how the operation works and the opportunities it opens for the future.
Guest Speaker Elizabeth Brown is the Chief Commercial Officer for the Cross Border Xpress. She is an airport specialist, with over 20 years experience in business development, human resources, communications, marketing and air service development.
Cross Border Xpress is an enclosed pedestrian bridge for Tijuana Airport (TIJ) passengers crossing the U.S./Mexico border. After more than seven years of planning, design and permitting with government agencies from both sides of the border, CBX opened for business in December 2015.
Spanning 390 feet, the CBX skywalk is the first ever to connect a facility in the U.S. directly into a foreign airport terminal. Cross Border Xpress serves the approximately 2.4 million passengers who already cross the border as part of their travels, helping them avoid unpredictable, often long delays at congested San Ysidro and Otay Mesa land ports of entry.
