MANILA, Philippines — Newly crowned Miss Universe Iris Mittenaere is set to fly to New York on Thursday afternoon, according to the Department of Tourism.

Tourism Undersecretary Katherine De Castro will send off the second Miss Universe of France, Mittenaere, as she heads to the John F. Kennedy Airport in New York, home of the Miss Universe Organization (MUO). She will be aboard Philippine Airlines.

On Wednesday, Mittenaere made a stop at the US Embassy in Manila.

The 23-year-old French beauty was named Miss Universe 2016 on Monday morning at the Mall of Asia Arena. She was crowned by her predecessor Pia Wurtzbach.

With her win, Mittenaere will have a year-long salary from the MUO. She will also enjoy luxury accommodations in a New York City apartment for the duration of her reign including living expenses.

The MUO said the titleholder will also be given tools to personally and professionally enrich others by providing humanitarian efforts to affect positive change, all while developing their personal career goals.

Mittenaere has not yet announced her return to her home country, France.
