I'm looking into buying two separate tickets to fly from Vienna to Minsk, with a connection at Kyiv Boryspil airport. Ukrainian Airlines comes out best, but there would be only 1 hour between flights.

Is it possible to connect in 1 hour (I would have only carry-on baggage)? What if I miss the connecting flight due to delays?

Ukrainian Airlines also sells the same ticket with the same 1-hour layover, but the price of the single ticket is very high compared to two separate tickets.

At KBP you'll have enough time to run to another gate within the terminal D, but remember that 1 hour leaves you no margin for a possible delay.


If you miss the second flight, you'll have to buy another ticket - the risk will fall upon you. So no, I would never do this.

The one time I did something similar, I booked a four-hour layover between flights. There's still risk with that, but it's much safer.
