Christopherson Business Travel is a corporate Travel Management Company headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah and founded in 1953.

Christopherson is the largest travel agency in Utah,[1] and the largest national travel affiliate of BCD Travel, with US$606 million in annual sales (2016) and more than 443 employees.

Christopherson owns and operates Andavo Travel, a network of independent vacation travel agents [2] as well as All Seasons Sports Travel, which specializes in fan-based travel planning and packages.

The State of Utah currently lists Christopherson as its Contracted Travel Agency.[3][4]

Christopherson Business Travel developed AirPortal, an integrated travel technology platform that houses the company’s proprietary technology, user dashboards, benchmarking and reporting tools, online booking tools, and mobile applications.

In 2012, Christopherson Business Travel developed and released AirPortal 360, an intelligent dashboard for travel managers, which grants access to Christopherson's collection of corporate travel management software. The technology was designed to assist in the reduction of corporate travel spend, facilitate duty of care responsibilities, keep track of unused tickets, access traveler profiles, and ensure policy compliance. In conjunction with their AirPortal 360 software release, Christopherson also released, My Travel, a similarly customized dashboard with specific tools for individual business travelers. In 2013, the company developed and released AirPortal 360 Mobile, the first app created for travel managers to manage their travel programs from mobile devices.[5]


Christopherson Business Travel was founded by Merrill and Lucille Christopherson in 1953. In 1981, Michael A. Cameron and his wife, Camille, purchased a part-ownership position from the original founders and owners.[6] By March 1990 the Cameron’s had purchased 100 percent of the company.

In January 2008, the company merged with Andavo Travel, creating one of the top 20 U.S. travel management companies.[7][8]

Effective March 2010, Michael A. Cameron and his wife Camille purchased the business and vacation travel divisions of Andavo Travel. The business travel division of the combined company is now branded and marketed nationally as Christopherson Business Travel. The vacation travel and independent contractor division is branded under Andavo Travel.[2]

At the end of 2013, Christopherson acquired Alabama-based All Seasons Travel. All Seasons' business travel division was absorbed into Christopherson Business Travel, the leisure division was absorbed into Andavo Travel, and a new division, All Seasons Sports Travel, was created to cater to the fan-based travel which All Seasons Travel specialized in. All employee positions were retained and Mike Cameron continued as CEO.[9]

In 2016, Christopherson acquired CV Humanitarian Travel, a division focused on providing travel services for non-profit and faith-based trips.

Christopherson is currently ranked #12 out of the top travel management companies in the United States by Business Travel News, a top publication of the corporate travel industry. BTN’s annual Business Travel Survey measures the performance of suppliers in all corporate travel segments.[10]
