Flight Cancellation Compensation Tap Air Portugal

In the event of a Tap Air Portugal flight cancellation, European laws on air passenger rights are clear: Tap Air Portugal must offer you alternative transportation to get to your destination or, if you prefer, a refund.

In addition, if you received a notice regarding cancellation less than 14 days before departure, you may also be able to claim compensation up to €600 per person.

In general, when Tap Air Portugal cancels flights, it will attempt to rebook passengers directly onto another flight at no additional cost. You can request other changes if the alternative flight that is offered does not work for you or if you no longer want to take that trip.

If Tap Air Portugal can book you a new flight that lands at a similar time to your original flight, it is not required to pay any compensation. This is correct, because you will arrive at your destination with minimal disruption to your plans. However, in many cases, passengers whose flights are canceled at the last minute have the right to file a claim against Tap Air Portugal for compensation.

All this applies unless the flight cancellation was caused by an event beyond the control of Tap Air Portugal, such as bad weather conditions or an accident at the airport. These events are referred to as exceptional circumstances.
