MANILA -- Philippine Airlines on Monday named Stanley Ng, a pilot and son-in-law of the company's billionaire owner Lucio Tan, as its acting president and chief operating officer.

The 42-year-old replaces Gilbert Santa Maria who is stepping down just two and a half years into the job. The outsourcing veteran steered the carrier during the coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent Chapter 11 bankruptcy process in the U.S., which was completed in December.
