CMA CGM subsidiary Australian National Line has opened a new Southeast Asia / Australia passenger service using four 5,100 TEU container ships transferred in from the Pacific Express 3 round-the-world service to join the AAX service.

The CMA CGM White Shark opened the new service, with a first sailing from Singapore on April 14, followed by the CMA CGM Alcazar (above) on April 21 and CMA CGM Blue Whale on April 29. The CMA CGM Tarpon will follow, with her first sailing due to leave Singapore on May 12.

AAXThe AAX service offers weekly sailings from Singapore and Port Kelang, and in the opposite direction from Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Fremantle, with most being able to accept passengers for the full 35-day round voyage. One-way passages can also be booked and fast connections made at Singapore for the UK and Europe.

While the Panamanian-flag CMA CGM Alcazar carries three passengers in an Owners and a Single cabin,  the British-flag trio each carry six passengers in three Double cabins. The British-flag trio feature swimming pools, while the CMA CGM Alcazar offers a sauna instead.
