We take the stress out of travel by providing quality & comfort before boarding.




With 10 years of experience operating more than seven airport lounges across the U.S., we excel in the customer experience with innovative concepts in management and operation. Airist has partnered with companies like Air France, TAV Airport Holding, Korean Air, China Airlines, Air India, and many more to bring quality and comfort for passengers before take-off. Visit one of our lounges today.


Airist also offers complementary services, such as our meet & assist program with VIPONE to fast-track security, and soon to launch arrival services. Before security, be sure to also visit our retail restaurant, Jikji Cafe. Both services are located at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York in Terminal One. 


Owned and operated by Jun S. Lee., Airist provides food, management, and other airport lounge services across major American cities.
