How much compensation can I get for a delayed or cancelled Lisbon flight?

If your flight was delayed by over 3 hours upon arrival or if the cancellation of your Lisbon flight was announced fewer than 14 days before departure, you may be eligible for compensation. The airline must also be at fault for the cancellation.

The amount of compensation you can receive is determined by the distance of your flight:

At the airline's service counter in the airport, you can directly redeem those vouchers. If the airline does not give you vouchers, you may purchase what you require and save the receipts; the airline will be responsible for paying you back.

Were you offered a voucher for your cancelled flight from Lisbon? Here's what you should knowI

If your Lisbon flight was cancelled, the airline may offer you a voucher as compensation. We highly recommend that you do not accept it. Accepting a voucher often means that you are restricted to booking another flight with the same airline, and the voucher may come with an expiration date, leaving you with a limited timeframe to use it. Additionally, if the airline declares bankruptcy, there is a risk that you may not be able to recover your money. Thus, it is advisable to opt for a monetary refund instead.

Flight delayed or cancelled to Lisbon, am I also entitled to flight compensation?

The requirements to claim flight compensation or a refund for your delayed or cancelled flight to Lisbon are slightly different depending on how you travelled there.

For your delayed or cancelled flight to Lisbon, you can receive flight compensation if:

  • You were flying from a European country or the UK

  • You were flying with a European or British airline

Your flight won't be covered by European laws governing flight compensation if it was operated by a non-EU/UK airline and originated in a non-EU country. The table below provides more thorough details:

Extraordinary circumstances disrupted my Lisbon flight - can the airline deny my claim?

If the cause of delay or cancellation was due to extraordinary circumstances that were beyond the airline's control, they may reject your compensation claim. Some instances of such circumstances include but are not limited to:

  • Bad weather conditions, such as thick fog, heavy rain, or thunderstorms.

  • A strike, most often specifically within the aviation industry (for example, a strike of air traffic control workers at a specific airport).

    However, a strike of the airline's crew is not considered an extraordinary circumstance!

  • Political circumstances, such as a terrorist attack or general security risk due to political unrest.

  • Natural disasters, including volcanic eruptions and hurricanes.

  • A collision between the aircraft and birds or other foreign objects.

  • An ill or unruly passenger.

  • Flight delays caused by the airport staff, such as extraordinarily long queues to security checks.
