Cheboygan, Mich.’s Air Bear Travel took delivery on two new 2019 Prevost H3-45s models, which feature the trademark frameless scenic windows to enhance passenger visibility, as well as back-up cameras for the driver and wireless microphones for tour hosts.

Air Bear Travel acquired its first Prevost coach in 2016. Since January 2016, the operation has added 12 more Prevost H3-45s to the Air Bear fleet, including the two most recent deliveries.

Meanwhile, Premier Alaska Tours added four 2019 H3-45s. The company owns and operates 104 Prevost H3-45s exclusively. Its most recent acquisition, in addition to the four units delivered last December, tipped the scale of new versus older coaches within their fleet. Additionally, its four glass-domed railcars travel between Anchorage and Fairbanks every day during the summer.

Premier Alaska Tours acquired its first 50 Prevost H3-45s in 2012 in a bulk purchase of Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines’ entire coach fleet. With 35 coaches of their own at the time, owners, Peter Grundwalt and Tim Worthen have since worked steadily toward the goal of operating an all-Prevost fleet.

According to company president, Josh Howes, Premier Alaska has routinely purchased eight new model Prevost H3-45s each year since 2013 in order to modernize the older fleet with new-model units, perfectly suited for its client tour companies and passengers with ample luggage bays and panoramic views through flush-mounted, frameless windows.
