Frontier Airlines to start charging for carry-on bags, advance seating


NEW YORK — Frontier Airlines will soon start charging for carry-on bags placed in the overhead bin and advance seat assignments.

The Denver-based airline is attempting to transform into a fee-dependent airline similar to Spirit Airlines and Allegiant Airlines.

Frontier Airlines currently flies from Greensboro (PTI) to Denver (DEN).

Frontier currently charges $1.99 for soda or water on its flights, a fee added on July 1, according to the Associated Press.

In exchange for the new fees, the airline says it is lower its base fare by an average of 12 percent. The new charges will apply to new ticket purchases.
