Frontier Airlines is raising its baggage fees in May. The increases will take effect on May 1 and range from $5 to $10 per checked bag. The biggest increase is for bags checked last-minute at the gate, from $50 to $60. Other baggage fees are going up by $5. Frontier, like fellow discount airlines Spirit Airlines and Allegiant Air, has a long list of baggage fees, with prices based on where you buy your ticket and when you pay for the bags.
The baggage fee during online check in is going from $20 to $25 and the fee at the airport is going from $25 to $30. A second checked bag at the airport is going from $30 to $35.
Travelers who buy their tickets on Frontier’s website and pay for their bags at the time of booking or anytime before getting to the airport do not face higher fees.
