After the merger, he was promoted with Flying Tigers in the same sector of activities. He then moved to Euralair, a French charter airline operating both in business jets (with a Citation and Falcon) and a 737 on behalf of Air France on the intra-European market. He is now with Groupe ADP airport authority, managing the operational division first at CDG for support to foreign airlines like TWA, British Airways, Singapore Airlines, and SAS. He now heads a special project division at Paris Le Bourget dedicated to business aviation.
