30 MIN Connection At LCY?

I wonder if 30 minutes between to international BA flights is enough at LCY? Looking to fly ARN-LCY-MAD.


Any help is appreciated.


EDIT: Will I have to re-clear security again?

Is BA selling the ticket or are you self-connecting on two tickets?

Also, baggage or not? 30 minutes is risky.

BA is selling the ticket and I will not have any baggage.

I did connection in 15 minutes at LCY from VG to VG flights (now Cityjet). But that doesn't matter on the airline actually.
Security can be a bit busy at some moments, but usually it's very fine and you'll be in the queue for security within a few minutes after your arrival.
Although, beware of delays... Can you risk that short time? Or if it's on one ticket you do not have to worry, BA will take good care for you then.

Then yes, that sounds possible. At least you're covered if you miss it- there is a flight connections channel at LCY and AFAIK there is no reason why you couldn't use it.

So I will have to clear security again?

Yes, you should have to clear security again, just like if you were connecting at LHR.

Yeah, I see. Have connected through LHR quite a few times and the lines can be long. Hopefully it is better at LCY.

It's better for sure, plus the staff is helpful to accomodate you in front of the lines when neccesary to catch a flight (experienced myself during a more busy moment).
Of course you can always make sure to be seated close to the exit on the inbound flight, so you create a few more minutes for yourself

Yes, you should have to clear security again, just like if you were connecting at LHR.

One of the disadvantages of connecting in the UK (which isn't part of the Schengen area) is the need to clear security twice. If you connected at AMS/FRA/CDG/ZRH/BRU or anywhere else in the Schengen area you would only have to clear security once at ARN. I made a 15 minute connection at AMS a few weeks ago when my inbound flight was late. I would never have been able to do that if there had been a second security check.

Even at LCY a 30 minute connection is risky if only due to the possibility that your arriving flight is late.
