JetBlue Increases Checked Baggage Fees
Wednesday, 29 Aug 2018
JetBlue has announced that it is increasing the cost of checking a bag.
The price hike will see the cost of one checked bag raised from $25 to $30. A second checked bag will go up from $35 to $40. Most notably, a third checked bag will increase from $100 to a massive $150. These prices will apply to passengers travelling on the cheapest ‘blue’ fares.
The fee increase will be applied to all bookings made on or after August 27th, 2018, and is said to be due to spiralling fuel costs.
It is believed that other major airlines will follow suit and increase their checked baggage fees, too. Air Canada and WestJet have already taken the decision to do so.
Why not skip airline baggage fees altogether and send your bags ahead to your destination? This way you get to bring as much luggage as you like, while enjoying the luxury of travelling luggage-free.
