De-Icing Insurance Terms & Conditions

What is De-Icing?

Aircraft de-icing is required when the wings and other essential parts are covered in snow or ice. A unique solution is sprayed over the aircraft which melts the ice quickly, and prevents it re-freezing during take-off.

What does De-Icing a Blink Jet typically cost?

Our de-icing bills range from £450 to over £3,000 depending on the airport, the amount of solution used, and the number of times the aircraft has to be de-iced prior to take-off. An average bill is about £800. This bill is not included in our fares, and is passed onto passengers post-flight at cost.

What is De-Icing Insurance?

Our insurance, when taken with a Blink flight, removes any liability for any deicing carried out during your flight, no matter the cost. No nasty bills post-flight, guaranteed peace of mind.

How Much is De-Icing Insurance?
