In connection with the upcoming Chinese New Year period, Maersk has endeavoured to balance our network to match reduced demand. We aim to minimize the impact to our customers and provide customers predictability by making a structural change and securing alternative routings. AE2 service will be blanked from week 4 for 4 con-secutive weeks, resumption is expected early to mid-March subject to demand. We will have further communication on AE2 service resumption in due course. In addition to suspending our AE2 service, we will blank the sailings of AE7 service in week 4 and AE6 service in weeks 5 and 6.

Alternative coverage for Europe to Asia will be communicated separately.
