PenAir, which for most of the year serves as the only commercial airline between Anchorage and several rural hubs in southwest Alaska, has announced new fees on baggage.

The airline says the first bag will still be checked free, but the second bag will now cost $25. Bags 3-5 will cost $50 each to check, and the fees go up from there.

Pen Air is also raising the ticket change and cancelation fee to $100.

The changes go into effect for tickets purchased on or after Oct. 30.
