On the Border (part 2)

I am writing this on Friday, May 23 from Gate 5 (Puerta 5) at Tijuana International Airport (TIJ), getting ready to board Aero México flight 190 (vuelo 190) to Mexico City (Ciudad de Mexico). Check out the photo of me in front of the AeroMexico 737-800 and some other shots I took at TIJ .

I thought this would be an ideal time to talk about the results of the Airport Authority’s Cross-Border Terminal Market Demand Study. This was a study launched by the Airport Authority to analyze the amount of usage a cross-border terminal concept at the San Diego/Tijuana border might receive.

Here is a summary of findings and projections based on the results of that study:

  • The number of passengers using Tijuana Internatioinal Airport (TIJ) from the United States will continue to grow significantly over the next 20 years, regardless of whether a cross-border terminal is developed.
  • If an easy cross-border connection is not built, it is estimated that 2.1 million annual passengers (MAP) to and from the United States will use TIJ in 2020 and 3.7 MAP in 2030.
  • Therefore, with an easy cross-border terminal, a TOTAL of 3.2 MAP to and from the United States would use TIJ in 2020; and in 2030 that number could rise to 6.4 MAP.
I have recently given presentations on the Cross Border Terminal Market Demand Study to the following groups:
The entire study is now posted on the Airport Authority’s Web site here (aqui). After clicking the link, be sure to scroll down to where it says, “Cross Border Terminal Market Demand Study.”

And guess what? The study is being formally presented the Airport Authority Board TODAY (Cinco de Junio, 2005) at its public meeting.

Un Salud! – Ryan (aka Pedro!)

  1. I think this would be a nice way to bring San Diego and Tijuana closer together.
