Business Travel News has ranked Christopherson Andavo Travel #14 among all participating travel management companies. The data used to rank the agencies was independently verified by ARC (Airlines Reporting Corporation), which is the airline ticketing clearinghouse for all travel agencies and airlines. Air transaction counts excluded refunds, exchanges and voids.
The ranking was the first to reflect the combined operations of Christopherson Business Travel of Salt Lake City, Utah and Andavo Travel of Denver, Colorado. The two companies merged on January 28, 2008. The merger agreement between the two travel management firms combined operations to form one of the largest travel management firms in the United States and the largest national BCD Travel affiliate.
The merged company has over 220 team members, 35 offices and supports more than $250 million in annual travel bookings. Christopherson Andavo Travel provides intelligent travel management to more than 600 successful companies.
“We are pleased to see how the merger has placed us in a Super Regional status and has set the stage for us to continue to grow in this highly competitive market”, said Mike Cameron Co-CEO. “The merger was done for strategic reasons and has put us in a position where we are now qualified for larger travel management bids. We are currently implementing 6-8 new clients in states from coast-to-coast.”
