If you fly from winter weather to winter weather, deicing charges can add up. Some jet cards include deicing in your hourly rate – and they aren’t necessarily more expensive
It’s not even summer, yet. But it will soon be winter, and if that means winter weather. And that means your private jet may need deicing. Deicing can cost from under $1,000 to as much as $10,000 per incidence. The cost varies by the size of your airplane and airport rules, plus what type of fluid and how much is being used.
While some programs have peak day surcharges up to 67%, these jet cards have 0% surcharges on high-demand days
Peak days in jet card programs are just that. They are the dates with the highest demand. They’re typically around major holidays, sporting events, and school breaks. With surcharges ranging up to 67%, travel on peak days is best avoided. But, if you aren’t flexible on your travel dates, these North American programs won’t charge you extra to fly.
To help you quickly review the various policies and protocols implemented by private aviation providers selling jet cards and memberships, we’ve created a single page overview you can find here.

It read, “Sentient Jet in Europe? Hmm…”
