Connecting At EDI - 55 Minutes?

Hey,

I have a sort of dilemma at the moment regarding a few flights I've booked. I'm planning on flying BHX-BHD-STN-EDI-BHX on the 15th July, and the section STN-EDI-BHX is keeping me a tad worried.

I arrive into EDI, on easyJet, from STN at 19:20 that evening. My connecting flight to BHX, on FlyBe, departs EDI at 20:15. So, basically, my question is... do you think it's possible to make that connection? Bear in mind I'll be arriving and departing on domestic flights, and I will have checked in online for my flight and have my boarding pass, but having never done this sort of thing before (and having never flown domestically before) I don't really know what to expect!

Any help would be appreciated... in hindsight I probably should've planned STN-EDI-BHX better, but it was the best I could do...

Regds,
Daniel.

If you don't need to claim any luggage I would have thought that would be ok as when you arrive at Edinburgh you will automatically be in the departure gate area.

Hello Dan,

I've transited thru EDI many times before when on a flying day around the UK...just for fun....

55mins.... ?????


that's plenty of time for EDI, you'll even have time to grab a pint or two....

As you get off your flight , and head into the terminal, just check out the monitors for your gate, and walk straight there. via the bar of course...no need to go thru reclaim etc

enjoy your day flying..

Even if your STN flight arrives at the most distant gate from where your BHX flight departs from, you can walk it in no more than 10 mins.
