Spirit Air To Charge For Boarding Passes This Fall

MIRAMAR (CBS4) – Starting this fall passengers on Spirit Airlines will have to pay an additional five dollars if they pick their boarding pass up from the ticket agent at the gate.

The Miramar based carrier, which is the only U.S. airline to charge for carry-on luggage, said the new boarding pass fee will go into effect on November 1st. Passengers can avoid the fee by printing the boarding pass at home, or by using a check-in kiosk at the airport.
