Chennai: In the 64th such incident, a glass panel collapsed at the international terminal of Chennai airport on Wednesday.

The mishap took place at Etihad Airways’ departure area. No injuries have been reported. Chennai airport, one of India’s busiest airports, is run by government-owned Airport Authority of India (AAI).

Minor accidents are a regular feature at the infamous airport. During the devastating floods in 2015, the entire airport was flooded for weeks.

Several travel websites, like hellotravel, have declared it as one of the worst airports in Asia.

According to a survey done by a travel website, the Guide to Sleeping in Airports, Chennai airport ranks as one of the worst airports in Asia.

The survey done in 2016, in which 26,297 travellers participated, says passengers are unhappy with the maintenance of toilets and baggage handling. “Baggage-wise, complaints begin with the amount of time it takes for your bags to be disembarked from the plane. Once you have them, it is then unlikely that you will find a working trolley or helpful staff. Bathroom-wise, problems tend to stem from the leaking faucets, the dirty floors and the never-scrubbed toilets,” it said as reported in 'The Hindu'.

In 2013 and 2014 too, Chennai Airport found a place among the of worst airports in Asia.

Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport, Kempe Gowda International Airport, Bengaluru, Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Airport and Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport have been ranked among the best airports in Asia and one of the best airports in the World. All are private airports.
