Question 35 min connection @ BCN

FT Community,

I need to book routing via BCN and would only have 35 mins (on separate itins.)

Can this be done? Or am I crazy?

You would need just about everything to go right to make that connection, but in theory if you were connecting Vueling to Vueling (domestic or Schengen) you could get off the plane (assuming you don't get stuck with a remote stand / bus), find your next gate and rush over there (no passport control or additional security).

If you're trying to connect different airlines (particularly low cost carriers who are in the old terminal), the Madrid Puente Aereo, non-Schengen international... no chance...

Which flights planning to try to make? With or without luggage? Unless it's something like domestic to domestic it will be very difficult... It's probably less than the minimum connection... Good luck!
