Late-Breaking Program News AirTran Bag Fee Increase
(Posted: Aug 22, 2010)

Effective Sept. 1, 2010, the charge for a first checked bag on AirTran will be $20 (from $15) and the fee to check a second bag will remain $25.

Active duty military personnel receive up to three free checked bags and travelers in business class and elite members can check two bags at no charge. AirTran Airways business class upgrades start at $49 one-way so if you are checking two bags and are not an elite member, you may want to consider upgrading to first class and receive a bag fee waiver, more legroom, complimentary cocktails and priority boarding.

AirTran's new baggage fee will match the first checked bag fee charged by low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines, which requires payment of $20 for the first bag ($30 for a second bag). JetBlue still allows one free bag and charges $30 for a second bag, while Southwest continues to permit passengers to check two bags at no charge.
