Bangalore (BLR, BIAL): Is airside connection domestic -> international possible?

I have only 95 mins time between a domestic Indigo from AMD and onward flight with Lufthansa and would like to avoid any unnecessary delays.
How big are the chances to make it?
Of course I don't have luggage.

Thanks for advice,
Thomas

Transfer desk for boarding pass

I found out that I will not be able to already print my LH boarding pass upfront but need to do it at the airport.
So basically I have two questions:
1. Is there a tranfer desk to be able to print out my boarding pass?
2. Is there a direct way to the international gates (LH) to avoid going landside.
Thanks!

its been a couple of years since i did a domestic to international transfer in blr but 95 minutes would be a little tight....

you can't go directly to the international gates & would have to go through security after checking in for your international flight....

That is correct - You can come out and prior to exiting the terminal you have a gate to go to departures again where you can check-in and go through security again! With all the 6E delays happening in AMD n elsewhere - I would strongly suggest to check for an alternative early flight if you can!

This is not possible. As Bioflyer pointed out, you will exit after domestic baggage claim and turn right to the check-in desks. If your AMD flight is on time, this should be doable since technically the walk between entering the terminal after your domestic flight and reaching the desks is 5-7 minutes.

Your biggest risks will be indigo delays and immigration at BLR. If everything goes on time, it's doable without any bags.
