Frontier adds carry-on fee for some passengers

It may cost you a little more than expected to take a Frontier flight out of New Castle County Airport.

The airline has announced it is adding a fee for carry-on bags, and plans to start charging $2 for soda and coffee.

The new carry-on fee announced Wednesday will be $25 if paid in advance, and $100 if paid at the gate. It applies to bags in the overhead bin, so small bags under the seat will still be free.

Passengers who buy their tickets on the airline's website won't have to pay.

Frontier says the new fee will take effect this summer, and it will announce a specific date later.

A new drink fee begins July 1 - the same day it begins service to the Wilmington-area airport. Water will still be free.
