Connection Time at BKK

Hello...

I am traveling on a Bangkok Airways Domestic Ticket from Chiang Mai to Bangkok (6:55 am-8:15 am). Is 55 minutes at BKK a doable connection to a Thai Airways International Flight to DPS (Bali)? If I purchase...I would have a separate ticket for the flight from BKK to DPS. Could I check bags all the way?

Thanks

Connection Time at BKK

BKK is a big airport and security time can be long. Certainly with the runway renovation ( increased MCT), to do this on 2 tickets is highly inadvisable IMHO.

It's not a legal connection, which is listed as 60 min. It's doable only if you have bags checked through and get processed by immigration in CNX (which I'd recommend regardless). The question is will PG transfer your bags if the connection time is just below the MCT?

The runway is about done (if not already finished). Furthermore OP could (theoretically) only need to pass through transfer security/CIQ (depending upon which terminal the dom flight arrives in) which is a breeze.

OP; There is a TG flight which leave 5 minutes later and has a scheduled arrived 5 minutes earlier. Oddly, the MCT for TG-TG is 75min.
