check in time @AUH

I'm flying out of AUH soon, with a flight departure of 02:20 hours . I would like to use the airport lounge through Priority Pass, or perhaps through my business class ticket, for a relatively long wait, if possible. But I see that TK only opens check in two hours before departure at AUH, according to Google. Is this correct?

If so, could I check in online, (I have no bags to check), and then enter the airside at AUH using a boarding pass on my mobile phone?

No mobile boarding pass or kiosk check-in, I'm afraid.
Generally, check-in at outstations open 3 hours before departure. However, I am not sure about AUH.

Thanks. What is the difference between mobile check in and mobile boarding pass in the table that you have linked to? Should I still do online or mobile check in, even if it does not offer a boarding pass?

Mobile check-in -> Online check-in via the TK mobile app
Mobile boarding pass -> Boarding pass on your phone with a QR code

To close out this thread, I got to AUH around 11:30 pm and the Turkish Airlines counter was open, and not particularly crowded. Even though I got a mobile boarding pass for my connecting leg from IST, I was given paper boarding passes for both flight segments, plus a pass to the airside lounge.
