Are you trying to learn English? One of the best ways to learn English is by memorising phrases. Here you can find 10 English airport phrases to help you when you are travelling. English is a global language that is often used when there is no shared language.

We have selected ten phrases that you will either hear 👂 or say 🗣 when at the airport. Can you identify which ones you will say and which ones you will hear?

Let’s begin learning some useful airport phrases!

  • I am travelling here for tourism purposes.
  • I would like a window seat, please.
  • May I see your passport?
  • Do you have anything to declare?
  • I have had all my vaccinations and my return flight is booked.
  • I am an Italian citizen.
  • Where are you flying to today?
  • Have a good flight and enjoy your journey.
  • Did you pack your own bag today?
  • Here is your boarding pass, please show it at the gate.
