Mission & Values

LoungeBuddy elevates your airport experience by making it a memorable chapter of your journey. Below are our core values that guide us forward.


Trust & Respect

We default to trust, assume best intent, and lead with integrity. We always work to build each other up.



We work as partners, not competitors. We value each other's strengths, and support their weaknesses. We seek solutions together, not blame.


Learning & Growth

We seek to understand. We're not afraid to fail — when we take a leap, we learn, grow, and move on. We're passionate and diligent.



We value impact over visibility. We're excited to take on responsibilities. We're resourceful, innovative, and pragmatic.



We're self aware and others-aware. We celebrate diversity. We listen without judgement. We keep our minds open and are always inclusive.

Meet the Team

The LoungeBuddy team is made up of very unique and fascinating people. We are a small but mighty team that are passionate about working collaboratively, travel, and of course airport lounges.
