Westbound: Jebel Ali, Salalah, Jeddah, Port Tangiers, Algeciras, Valencia and Barcelona.
Eastbound: Port Tangiers, Algeciras, Valencia, Barcelona, Jeddah, Salalah and Jebel Ali.
The first westbound vessel sailing will be the Maersk Dauphin, scheduled to depart from Jebel Ali on Feb. 26. The first eastbound sailing will also be the Maersk Dauphin, departing from Port Tangiers on March 11.
