The passenger rights portal Flightright has obtained an attachment order against TAP Air Portugal in Germany. According to the announcement, it is about 750.000 euros, which the carrier has not paid despite a final court ruling and multiple requests for payment.

Flightright is now seizing accounts and other credit balances that TAP maintains with German banks in order to be able to collect the sum. The background to the claim are compensation claims from customers from 2019. In addition to the costs awarded for the legal proceedings and the expenses for legal fees, the sum has now grown to over one million euros.

According to Flightright, TAP Air Portugal no longer has access to bank accounts in Germany due to the execution process. How much money the carrier has with German banks is currently unclear. In any case, the passenger rights portal criticizes the fact that TAP would not pay despite a final court ruling.
