Departure time is the time the aircraft leaves the gate, either by taxiing or being pushed back. For many airlines the time is automatically recorded to ARINC by the aircraft itself. A radio signal is sent when the cabin door is closed and the brakes are released.
The departure time is the same for all airlines, large or small.
