It now costs more for passengers to check their bags for Air Canada and WestJet flights.
The airlines are raising the fee for the first checked bag by five-dollars to 30-dollars and by 20-dollars for the second bag to 50-dollars.
Air Canada and WestJet say the increases follow similar fee bumps by major U-S airline JetBlue Airways as well as rising fuel prices and other costs.
For years, the airlines checked the first bag for free, but that policy largely ended across the industry by 2014.
The increases were put in place this week for domestic flight bookings, and with WestJet are effective for international flights booked starting today.
The fees apply to the lowest fare classes at both airlines. (The Canadian Press)
