Airline increases baggage charge
Flybe aircraft
Flybe says the charge is a fairer deal
Passengers using a Channel Island-based airline will have to pay more to have their baggage carried in the hold.

The low-cost airline Flybe has announced it will be increasing the charge, which was introduced in February this year.

If luggage is booked in advance on the company's website, the cost will rise from 1 to 2.50.

A 5 charge will be levied on passengers at airport check-ins who have not booked in advance.

When the initial charge was introduced, the company doubled the hand baggage allowance.
