O balcão de informação

Information Counter

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”.

O voo está cheio?

Is the flight very busy?

Eu preciso de visto?

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

Window seat

Assento no corredor

Aisle seat

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

You don't need a visa

Serviremos um lanche frio e jantar

We'll serve a cold snack and dinner
