Hello,

Can we use the verbs 'leave' and 'depart' interchangeably in this context:

What time does the flight depart / leave?

I suppose both options are correct. Am I right? Is any of them more natural or popular? Thank you for your help in advance.

    Both are correct. In casual conversation, “leave” would almost always be used. In the context of formal airport information etc., you could expect to see “depart” instead.
