The terminal of departure for the airport ferries have now been changed to Hulhumale' ferry terminal.
The decision to change the terminals was publicized in a statement by Airport Ferry Operators Association.
The terminal which was almost always packed during the peak hours of both weekdays and weekends, is now mostly seen empty, ever since the bridge opened. More and more people opt to cross over to Male' in their own vehicles, which drastically decreased the demand for the ferries.
The ferry services were often scrutinized by the public for their lack of punctuality and poor organization, which eventually led to a vast majority of the public to prefer crossing over by land rather than the ferry.
