Passengers flying Frontier Airlines will now have to pay extra to place carry-on bags in overhead bins or for advance seat assignments. The move comes as the Denver-based airline transforms itself into a fee-dependent airline, similar to Spirit Airlines or Allegiant Air _ the only other U.S. carriers to charge such fees.

Frontier announced in January that it would begin servicing Logan customers in April, and the airline starting flying from Boston to Orlando International Airport in Orlando on Friday.

The daily, seasonal route to Orlando leaves Logan at 12:10 p.m. and arrives in Florida at 3:22 p.m. On the return side of things, it departs from Orlando at 8:20 a.m. and arrives at Logan at 11:20 a.m. Customers fly on the airline’s Airbus A320.

Frontier will launch two more nonstop seasonal routes from Boston in the next week and a half. Logan customers can fly Frontier daily to Denver International Airport in Denver beginning April 30, and to Raleigh-Durham International Airport in Morrisville, N.C. on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays starting May 1.
