According to our data on recent Tap Air Portugal flights, there were 1217 departures within 24 hours and 30.07% were on time.
Even though airlines like Tap Air Portugal strive to keep to their scheduled times, flights can still arrive late. Fortunately, as a traveller, you are protected by airline passenger rights when Tap Air Portugal flights are delayed.
Since Tap Air Portugal is based in the EU, almost all of its flights are protected by EC 261, one of the most comprehensive laws protecting air passenger rights worldwide.
EC Regulation 261 grants passengers the right to seek compensation when they have experienced delayed, cancelled, or overbooked flights that are not their fault.
There are some exceptional circumstances that may exempt airlines from paying compensation, such as bad weather or problems at the airport. However, if the delay is caused by technical problems or a strike by airline staff, you are likely to be owed compensation under Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004.
In addition, you generally have up to 3 years to file a Tap Air Portugal flight delay compensation claim. All you need to do is enter your flight details and our easy-to-use flight delay compensation calculator will tell you if you are entitled to monetary compensation and our team of experts will be on hand to help you get it.
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.
