Tempe, Ariz.-based US Airways will start charging in $20 in July for the first bag under 50 pounds checked in at the airport. That is up from the current $15 charge. The fee for a second checked bag will rise from $25 to $30.
Fees for luggage weighing between 51 and 70 pounds will now be $70 for the first bag and $80 for the second bag, US Airways said. Baggage checked in online will cost $15 for the first bag and $25 for the second.
The US Airways move mirrors those announced by Chicago-based United Airlines.
