Your Air Passenger Rights After Porto Airport Delays and Cancellations
We know how frustrating it can be to experience Porto Airport delays and cancellations. For most people, traveling is stressful enough without the added strain of a disrupted flight. After all, a late flight can lead to missed connections, bookings, and events — in other words, a delay not only leads to loss of time but loss of money as well.
This is why EU Regulation No. 261/2004 was created. Shortened to EC 261, it’s a law that protects air passengers by making the airlines financially responsible for flight delays and other disruptions that they are responsible for.
According to EC 261,

Compensation for Porto Airport Canceled Flights
When there are Porto Airport flight cancellations, you may be eligible for compensation provided that the airline was found to be responsible for the disruption.
Whether your flight qualifies or not is also dependent on when the airline canceled your flight — if you hear about it less than 14 days before departure, you are entitled to compensation. The amount that you receive will depend on the distance that your flight was supposed to cover.
But regardless of whether you get compensation or not, the airline is still obligated to provide you with care, which means that they must provide you with free meals, refreshments, and accommodation.
EC 261 also says that you must be given an alternative flight to your intended destination — provided you still wish to travel. You do have the option of getting a refund instead.

Compensation for Delayed Flights from Porto Airport
If you’ve had delays in Porto Airport that lasted more than 3 hours, you may qualify for compensation if the airline was found to be responsible for the disruption.
It’s important to remember when it comes to eligibility for compensation, it is the arrival time at your destination that matters, and not the departure time. This means that if you arrived at your destination more than 3 hours late, you and your fellow passengers could get compensated and each receive up to €600.
Along with compensation, you also have the right to care, which means that the airline is responsible for providing you with meals and refreshments, as well as a free hotel if you are expected to wait for a long time.
