Frontier Airlines said on Friday it was raising baggage fees and reducing a fee to change tickets.

The Denver-based airline said it would begin charging $20 for the first checked bag and $30 for the second, up from $15 and $25. The higher fees are for tickets bought beginning Tuesday and apply to travel beginning Oct. 1.

Travelers with "Classic" or "Classic Plus" tickets can check two bags for free.

Travelers with so-called Economy tickets can change them for $100 instead of $150. There's also a $100 fee to switch flights on the same day.

Travelers with Frontier's Classic tickets can change their ticket, including on the day of travel, for $50.

Denver-based Frontier has been reorganizing under bankruptcy protection. A deal that will make it a subsidiary of Republic Airways Holdings Inc. is expected to close around Oct. 1.
