money exchange at airport

in a few days i'm going to arrive at kolkata airport around 2 am. are there any banks open around that time and if yes, is it advisable to change money at the airport? or are the rate going to be better in the city?

and since my first day in kolkata is going to be a saturday - are the banks open on saturday?

thanks for your help and any other suggestions!
