MCI delivers to Alaska, Texas

Posted on June 20, 2011

[IMAGE]Premier-Alaska-MCI-June-20-2011-2.jpg[/IMAGE] Anchorage-based Premier Alaska Tours added two new 2011 Motor Coach Industries (MCI) J4500 coaches. The model now accounts for 75 percent of Premier Alaska’s fleet of 32 MCI coaches.

Premier Alaska’s newest J4500 coaches are equipped with three-point passenger seat belts, pillow-top plush seating by Amaya, a state-of-the-art Blaupunkt entertainment system with six flat-screen monitors and 110-volt power ports at every seat.

The company, renowned for creating customized land-tour packages for international cruise ship operators during the spring and summer months, also keeps its fleet busy by providing commuter services to oil and forestry company executives and charter services to school districts in the winter months.

Due to the extreme winter weather conditions in Alaska, the company takes its models with specifications that include a larger auxiliary heater, extra insulation, and a heated entryway and driver area.

The company purchased its first new coach, also a J4500, last year. Owner Jose Morales founded Continental in 2001 with a pre-owned MCI. In 10 years’ time, Morales has built his business to a fleet of eight motorcoaches, mostly later models.

Continental’s newest MCI J4500 comes equipped with a Cummins engine and MCI’s latest upgrades and options including plush leather seating, three-point passenger seat belts, Wi-Fi connectivity, in-motion Satellite TV and 110-volt outlets that let passengers plug in their electronic devices.
The coach’s eye-catching patriot graphics, designed by Turbo Images, pay tribute to Morales’ appreciation of the U.S.
