Passengers checking a second bag on Continental Airlines Inc. flights after May 5 will have to pay $25.
The new policy follows other air carriers now charging for extra baggage to offset rising fuel costs, according to the Houston, Texas-based airline.
Destinations included in the policy are flights within the United States, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Canada.
Continental Airlines (NYSE:CAL) Elite OnePass members, SkyTeam Elite, Elite Plus members, Continental Airlines Presidential Plus credit-card holders and non-Elite customers who purchase certain fare types may check two bags at no charge.
