it's an enormous airport and lines for passport control and security can be long. Allow yourself at least two hours which gives some buffer if your incoming flight is late. We had a one hour connection in the summer, non-Schengen to Schengen, but our incoming flight arrived 15 minutes late. Despite sprinting for our connection for what seemed like miles, and using the security fast track which didn't seem to make a difference as this took a long time, passport control also took a long time and we missed it. It was one ticket, so were re-routed.

There is no way your question can be answered at this time as you haven't provided enough information.

We need to know the following before we can give you any indication at all:

Where are you flying from and to?

What airline(s)?

Is it on a single booking?
