My luggage did not appear at baggage reclaim. What should I do?
If your luggage is missing, please follow these steps:
Report it to the TAP counter (Lost & Found), before leaving the baggage reclaim area;
TAP will immediately start searching for the luggage through a universal system — the Worldtracer. To learn more about the process, please contact the phone number provided when the report is issued. Alternatively, you can check Worldtracer at TAP's website;
Once TAP has your luggage, it will be sent to the address you provided in the report or you will be informed of the collection procedure.
Create a TAP Account here. Once you have provided your details you receive an email with a link via which you can activate your registration and choose a password. This link is valid for 24 hours. After this period, you need to register again.
Baggage is carried in the hold for free on all flights except for tap|discount. If so, please be advised that you may purchase this service in the next step.
If you are traveling with checked luggage and have a connecting flight in Brazil, the United States or Canada, be sure to collect your luggage for customs control in these countries. Then follow the directions and go to the luggage transfer point.
