30 years ago, City Express Travel was born as a company to serve our local church and school customers in Chicagoland to fly within the United States. Over the years, we have grown our customer base to include schools, churches and other organizations across the country. Now, our people travel all over the world – with a focus on group travel, serving others, and spreading the Gospel to those who have never heard it.

We know and understand the beauty of the story of Jesus Christ and the life changing message it brings. Our understanding of the Gospel allows us to serve you in a better way no other agency can. Taking care of your group travel and individual travel is more than just planning your flights for us. The excitement of furthering the "good news" that has drawn millions to the Lord is a driving motivation. Our hope is to build a partnership with you and understand the work you are doing while on your mission trip. The greatest joy is hearing the impact that your trip had not only on your team, but the people you served along the way!
