Frontier Airlines is adding a fee for carry-on bags and plans to start charging $2 for soda and coffee.

The new carry-on fee announced Wednesday will be $25 if paid in advance and $100 if paid at the gate. It applies to bags in the overhead bin, so small bags under the seat still will be free.

Passengers who buy their tickets on the airline's website won't have to pay.

Frontier says the carry-on fee will take effect this summer; it will announce a specific date later.

The drink fee will begin July 1. Water still will be free.

Spirit Airlines Inc. began charging a carry-on fee three years ago.

Frontier's parent, Republic Airways Holdings Inc., is trying to fix Frontier's finances and sell it.
