Cristina Travel Corporation was founded in November 2000 by a group of reputable businessmen who believed in the potential of the Philippine travel industry. With the increasing sophistication of Filipino consumers as well as improvements in Philippine aviation, the management of Cristina Travel Corporation set out to meet the changing needs of the Filipino traveler.
After more than a decade of providing professional and quality service to its valued clientele, Cristina Travel Corporation is considered one of the most reliable travel agencies in the Philippines, catering to both the International and Local market. It has not only arranged business and incentive travel packages, but also cruises, vacations and leisure tours, for both individuals and groups.
In 2006, Cristina Travel expanded its product offering through its appointment as the GSA for Aeroflot Russian Airlines. In May 2006, VITA Travel Services was formed as a holding company for Cristina Travel’s GSA Appointment. In the same year, VITA Travel Services added Intourist (Russia’s largest tour operator) to its representative companies. In 2010, VITA Travel Services further expanded its portfolio to represent TAP Portugal, TACA and Alaskan Airlines.
In April 2010, Cristina Travel Corporation moved to its present location in Tower One of the Philippine Stock Exchange Building in Makati City. The relocation has enabled Cristina Travel to better serve the needs of its growing corporate and leisure clients.
In 2013, Cristina Travel Corporation became a member of the Philippine Travel Agencies Association and an accredited travel and tours agency with the Philippine Department of Tourism. These accreditations are in line with Cristina Travel’s thrust of providing quality service for the Filipino traveler.
