San Diego airport inadequacy solved with pedestrian bridge to Tijuana airport

I believe in aviation circles they refer to situations like this a “wicked burn, dude.”

After decades of suffering with an inadequate airport, private investors in San Diego have decided to circumvent the local government’s expansion inaction by taking matters into their own hands. They’re going to build a 500-foot pedestrian bridge to Tijuana’s airport.

No one asked me (yet), but I think they should call it the “Middle Finger Bridge.”

The already popular traveler workaround of driving over the border, parking and flying out of Tijuana will be made simpler with a $13-$17 fee to walk between the two airports, via “fast-tracked” immigration stops on both sides.

The U.S. has already given its blessing and a thumbs-up from Mexico is expected soon.
