A French national, Luc Citrinot has been busy as a freelance journalist and consultant in tourism and air transport for over 20 years in Paris. His vast experience in the field includes writing various travel and air transport trade publications based in both Europe and Asia, tourism and air transport reports and studies for MINTEL, PATA reports and studies on air transport issues linked to tourism development, as well as editing press kits and newsletter for Indonesia Ministry of Culture and Tourism.
His successful professional course further includes being an aviation editor for France’s leading business travel publication Voyages d’Affaires since 1989, regularly reporting on Asian destinations. Over the last two decades, he has also been editing an official daily newsletter for foreign media at the ITB Berlin the world’s largest trade show on tourism.

Luc’s love and interest for Asia dates back from the early nineties and led him to move to Asia in 2003, where for two years he worked as a Business Development Consultant with the low fare airline AirAsia and its Thailand’s subsidiary, Thai AirAsia. Following its airline experience, he reversed back to his previous position as a travel writer and journalist in tourism and air transport, commuting between Europe and Asia reporting extensively on Asian development in both French and English around the world from his Asian base in Bangkok.
Mr Citrinot commented on his appointment: "This is an exciting task to dedicate a Travel Daily News specific website for the entire Asia-Pacific region. And at the same time, a challenge due to the scale of the continent, the complexity of its cultures and the immense variety from one country to another. TDN Asia wants to report about tourism in this region in the most possible accurate and neutral way. We hope to continue getting increasing support from readers around the world for 2013".
