MANILA, Philippines (Updated 3:12 p.m.) Businessman and former Philippine Airlines chief Jaime Bautista is president-elect Ferdinand Marcos Jr.'s pick to head the Department of Transportation, the latter confirmed Thursday.

Incoming ES Vic Rodriguez confirmed this reporters in a text message.

Bautista, president and chief operating officer of the flag carrier from 2004 to 2019, is inheriting a transport situation that both commuters and transport workers alike say is in crisis, with wanting transport capacity on the roads only exacerbated by skyrocketing fuel prices.

He has also headed nine different companies, including serving as an independent director of Belle Corp., Premium Leisure Corp., and Nickel Asia Corp.
