Early entry into Chennai airport?

I'm currently in India. My eTourist visa expires 10/22. My flight out of Chennai airport is 5am 10/23. Can I enter the airport passing through customs on 10/22 and just stay in whatever the Priority Pass lounge is overnight?

I'm flying on Etihad out of Chennai. How do I find out what time their check in counter closes on 10/22 (before their last flight of the day presumably).

Any help is much appreciated!!

it is unlikely you will get entry into the airport 5-6 hours before your flight, even if the etihad counters are open....
