Question possible to make connection at STR(stuttgart) for only 45min for intra-EU flights?

I am in a schengen country, and I have a flight departing from STR(stuttgart, DE) to 3rd schengen country, so I need to position there, but since limited seat & date, the only flight I can take to STR will be just the previous flight of the one from STR, the schedule time between those two flights is only 45min, this situation in US will be a perfect thing and easy to do. but I don't know it's that work at STR airport?

I really have no idea what you are trying to do, but it sounds like you are buying separate tickets, in which case you donít have a connection at all, just two separate flights. I suggest you leave at least four hours between these, otherwise you risk being stranded at STR.

Depending on time and date you should have mo problem if everything is running on time. The airport is small enough to easily cover the distance in 45 minutes. With weather delays or understaffed security you may be cutting it close though.

This is not great advice. OP doesn't have 45 minutes as the next flight will have closed before then. If flights are on time he has perhaps 30 minutes, which is tight.

Yes, the tickets is booked sepereately. but I think I can check in online and get a mobile boarding pass.
And I don't think delay will be a problem, as I said, since the two flighs will be same aircraft, so if one delayed, the connection will be put off as well. The distance is one reason I worried, and more important is, something else like passport control? Do I need to pass again passport control? or need to pass through security check again...?

I think OP wants to do a direct turnaround in STR. Never done one myself, the BA forum has a report on a 45 min direct turn at STR: Back-to-back / Immediate Turnarounds at BA Destinations

Note, that when arriving from a Schengen country you wonít have to clear immigration twice so I guess youíll easily make it even if you have to reclear security.

aha...actually yes...so you know what I worried. The post you provided is useful but it's seems that on a international flight from LHR? I don't know what it is from a Schengen country, even no need to clear immigration again, but the situation is still unknown. Thank you for your information.
Hoping someone can provide information about a intra-EU back to back, or connection at STR...

Basically what you want to know is whether Schengen arrivals at STR disembark at the same gate used for boarding.

AFAIK, this is the case for many smaller German airports, but I don't know about STR specifically as I wasn't paying attention the last time I was there.

Please post your itinerary, it will help us. It could be you come from a place where the probability to be bussed to/from gate is high and in this case, immediate turn-around is not possible.

You can never rule out a bus gate at STR...

Embraer operated flight, most likely a bus gate. When arriving you are dumped into an arrival area, I think you need to clear security again to get back airside.
Honestly your risk are big, I would book the arrival the eve and sleep at Stuttgart.
