Spirit Airlines raises bag fees during holiday travel season

Posted: Updated:
Spirit Airlines is raising its checked-bag fee for flights during the busy Christmas and New Year's travel period.

Spirit is tacking on an extra $2 for bags checked on flights from Dec. 18 through Jan. 5. The airline says it's encouraging customers to pack lighter in order to make room for all of the checked bags flying during the holiday season.

Typically, Spirit's checked-bag fees range from $30 when done in advance, to $100 if done at the gate.

Members who pay to join Spirit's "$9 Fare Club" can get an additional discount.
