Longtime PAL chief honored by the Colegio

August 2, 2019


Colegio de San Juan de Letran honored one of its esteemed alumni, Jaime Jimenez Bautista, with a testimonial dinner last August 2 at the Intramuros campus.

In the presence of Letran’s administrators, the Dominican priests, and invited guests and batchmates, Bautista was given recognition for being a shining example of the ideals of Letran, displaying excellence in the industry he thrived in.

Bautista graduated from the Colegio in 1977 with a Bachelor’s degree in Commerce.

Bautista, the longtime president and chief operating officer of the Philippine Airlines, officially retired last June 24 after serving the awarded flag carrier for 26 years.

Just recently, under the watch of Bautista, PAL was awarded the world’s most improved airlines in the Skytrax Airline Awards.
