At What Time Does The Flight Leave?

Introduction


This post deals with time in general, and more specifically with the time, at which a flight, for example, departs.




SCENARIO


Imagine you are talking to a relative, a friend or colleague about a flight you have planned or you are both just about to catch. The other person doesn't know the flight departure time and says to you: "at what time does the flight leave?"

In Spanish, the other person could choose to say:
¿A qué hora sale el vuelo?


OUR TIP

The question is an invitation for you to state at what time your flight leaves. Your reply should depend only on whether you:


  • Know at what time your flight is due to depart
  • Don't know when the flight will leave

Here are a couple of examples of how you could reply:
  • Sale a la una y cuarto (it leaves at 1:15)
  • No sé a qué hora sale (I don't know when it leaves)

*Notes

Please note the difference between the expressions of time used in these answers and typical expressions used in telling the time, such as:
  • Es la una y media (it is half past one)
  • No sé qué hora es (I don't know what time it is)


Now you should practise answering the question:
¿A qué hora sale el vuelo?
