The San Diego County Regional Airport Authority continued inching forward Thursday in its consideration of building a cross-border airport terminal to allow U.S. passengers to access Tijuana’s airport.

But the deeper the authority gets, the more apparent the project’s challenges become.

The authority agreed Thursday to spend a maximum $385,000 to study whether any demand exists for a terminal that would allow San Diego passengers to more easily access flights out of Tijuana, where flights serve different destinations — including twice weekly direct service to Tokyo.

The border terminal would be unprecedented, airport officials say. They agreed to wait for a formal letter of interest from the Mexican government before beginning the demand study.
