A large glass panel crashed down from the facade of the new domestic terminal of Chennai airport on Sunday.
Nobody was injured in the accident which happened near the departure entry gate number one at 9am.
The panel, sized 1.5metre by 2.8metre, fell down to the ground floor of the building. It has left a gaping hole on the building.
Airports Authority of India engineers were trying to seal the damaged portion to prevent airconditioning from seeping out, said an official.
Glass panels have shattered and crashed down at the airport several times after the building was opened to passengers early last year.
