I'm looking at a tight connection between flights at Inverness and wondering just how challenging it would be to make the connection. Incoming flight is scheduled to arrive at 16:45, onward flight scheduled to depart at 17:30 - 45 minutes later. Both flights are on Loganair. We will only have hand/cabin baggage.
Flights are in July and late afternoon (so I'm guessing the chances of really awful weather are less than if it were a morning or in winter - but this is Scotland, I'm from Seattle, so I think I know what kind of weather to expect - anything!). It's a domestic flight, and I'm guessing that Inverness is a relatively calm, smaller airport (nothing like LHR) - presumable, to make this connection there's no need to exit the secure area and get rescreened - right? Then again, the onward flight is probably the last of the day (out to Kirkwall), so if we misconnect, we would probably be stuck until the next morning. It being the same airline is some comfort.
Is 45 minutes a reasonable time to make this connection at this airport? There is another flight we could take with a longer connecting time, but it's double the price (maybe that's why!)...
Thanks for your input.
