How Many Flights Are There From Madrid To Barcelona?

Imagine you are talking to a relative, a friend or colleague. Maybe you talking about daily flights between Madrid and Barcelona. The other person thinks you know a lot about that route and at some point says to you something like: "how many flights are there from Madrid to Barcelona?"

In Spanish, the other person could say:
¿Cuántos vuelos hay de Madrid a Barcelona?

The question is an invitation for you to say how many flights do the route Madrid → Barcelona. Your reply depends only on whether you:
  • Know roughly the number of flights per day;
  • Don't know the number of flights per day;

Here are some examples of how you could reply:
  • Hay muchos vuelos (there are many flights);
  • Hay más de cuarenta vuelos diarios (there are more than 40 daily flights);
  • No sé cuantos vuelos hay (I don't how many flights there);

Now you should practise answering the question:
¿Cuántos vuelos hay de Madrid a Barcelona?
