Portão de embarque
Portão de chegada
O balcão de informação
Now, here are some important questions that you will need to know when checking in at the information counter “o balcão de informação.” Listen to each word and and repeat them aloud.
A que horas eu devo estar no portão de embarque?
What time do I need to be at the departure gate?
Quanto tempo de voo?
How long is the flight?
Quanto tempo demora o voo?
How long does the flight take?
Quanto tempo de escala?
How long is the stop over?
Vocês servirão refeição?
Will you serve a hot meal?
Brazilians eat hot meals, because cold meals are considered appetizers or snacks. Refeição implies a hot meal, so you don’t have to say “refeição quente”.

Is the flight very busy?

Do I need a visa?
O visto é de quanto tempo?
How long is the visa valid for?
Quantos kilos de bagagem posso levar ?

Some people prefer window seats, some want to sit close to the aisle. I always ask for a window seat, that way I can get a first impression of the city we are going to land in, from above. Whichever one you prefer, here are the Portuguese words for it…
Assento na janela
Assento no corredor
Gostaria de ter um assento na janela, por favor
I would like to have a window seat, please
Gostaria de ter um assento no corredor, por favor
I would like to have an aisle seat, please
Here are some possible answers you might get…
Você tem que estar no portão 15 minutos antes do embarque
You have to be at the gate 15 minutes prior to departure
Infelizmente, não temos mais assentos na janela disponíveis
Unfortunately, we don't have any window seats left
Você não precisa de visto
