Anyone know opening hours of Air India lounge Chennai?

Did some googling but found nothing.

Even the Air India Chennai Lounge page annoyingly does not outline their hours. Reviews of the lounge say it is a bit run down with sparse food etc, and flakey or non-existent internet, but better than nothing and wonder if it is open in the early hours? i.e. do AI flights leave early am?

Thinking of a Business Class trip to Andaman Island for Xmas which leaves MAA at 5.05am and my flight arriving into MAA will be 11pm or so. So sitting in any lounge for 6 hours, even nice ones in Asia etc is never fun, but better than sitting in main hall!

Thanks for any first hand info.

Air India have a dedicated lounge only in the International Terminal. It's pretty basic and nothing to write home about.
On the Domestic side, there are 2 lounges that handle all the crowd and as far as i know, no dedicated Air India lounge.

Thank you.

But AI Star Gold and Biz pax will get an invite to these other 2 domestic lounges do you imagine?

More of my concern is the OPENING hours of these.

MAA international arrivals will get pretty busy around midnight and quite a few pax will continue on domestic flights. So expect to be airside on the domestic terminal only around midnight. The two domestic lounges are open all day. Air India will issue a lounge voucher for one of the two lounges once you checkin for the IXZ flight.
