    While air carriers might be cheaper, based on large bizjet experience, maybe $1500.

    Just for deicer it could cost $300-500 Not counting the de-icing truck and the crew. Couple of years ago a contract De-icer shot fluid down a running engine and damaged all the fan blades. the Fan blades alone were $190K and the airplane was out of service for 19 hours. So? It's not something Just anybody can do.
