Hello Folks!

I am planning a trip that involves changing planes at Dublin Airport.

I am flying from Liverpool UK - Dublin to Cardiff, Wales (its so much cheaper than taking the train!)

I will have 1hr 5 minutes from Landing to Take Off - I will not have to check in any bags at any airport, so I will be able to miss out the check-in area completely.

Do you think 1 hour 5 minutes is enough time? The flights are all in the morning, arriving at 07:25 and leaving at 08:30

Thanks for you help :)

If they're on time, yes.

I'm assuming this is Ryanair. They pad their flight times considerably, on the EMA-DUB route i can be leaving the terminal by the scheduled landing time. Only delay you may have is the gate in Dublin can be a 10 or 15 minute walk from the arrivals area.

Thank-you for your response :)

The flight from LPL-DUB is with Ryanair estimated to take 55 minutes then the DUB-CWL is with Flybe.

Thanks again.

Yes the actual cruise time between Liverpool and Dublin airports would be about 17 minutes so they do allow a fair bit at both ends. If the flight leaves on time you will likely get a bit more than the 1h05m for your connection. And early morning flights are the least likely to suffer delays.
