He was known for having done various jobs in support of ''Françafrique'' (a term referring to France's sphere of influence in its former colonies (French Colonial Empire)) for Jacques Foccart, in charge of French president Charles de Gaulle's policy in Africa. Having fought in Algeria during the Algerian War, he then took part in the Katanga (State of Katanga) secession in the 1960s and fought in many African countries including Congo (Republic of the Congo (Léopoldville)), Angola, Rhodesia (today Zimbabwe) and Gabon.

The comprehensive route system covered Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. With the delivery of more and more Tu-154s, Balkan opened longer-range routes, including ones to Zimbabwe, Angola and Nigeria in sub-Equatorial Africa, and to Sri Lanka and Vietnam in Southern Asia.
