    My domestic connection is in early morning and need to spend night 11 pm to 5 am.

    Is there any Start Lounges or any Lounges in Mumbai which is open at Night as well ?

    Thanks,

    There are 2 separate lounges run by 3rd party. If you have status you can access. I flew in march via thai and used the larger lounge and it was good.

    There's a Lufthansa Senator lounge in the Mumbai Airport and you'd need Star Alliance Gold status to access the lounge.

    However it's for international passengers only. Since Air India is joining Star Alliance tomorrow there might be more lounge options for domestic flights perhaps?

    Not in the new terminal AFAIK. At least I didn't see it when passing through a couple weeks ago. Also, because the OP will be continuing on a domestic flight they will need to clear immigration and customs upon landing so no access to lounges. There might be a pay lounge at arrival where the OP can spend a couple hours but typically access to the terminal is restricted until 3-4 hours prior to departure (possibly closer in the early morning) so the OP is going to be stuck outside for much of that layover.

    On landing in Mumbai and continuing on a domestic connection the OP will most probably have to change airports/terminals. Assuming he/she has calculated the time taken to clear immigration and customs and collect bags and still gets free at 11 PM, one needs to consider the time taken to transfer from one terminal to another by bus. If immigration and the time taken to collect bags has not been accounted for then that will take up almost an hour from the time you land.

    Another 30 minutes to get to the domestic terminal and you are left with only 4.5 hours out of your 6 hour stay. Depending on which airline you are flying domestically will define which domestic terminal you go to and that will define if there is a lounge or not.
