Airport Minimum Connection Times - Denver to London

By

Airport minimum connection times for several major airports around the world - in this feature Denver, Frankfurt, Helsinki, Houston, Kuala Lumpur, and London are covered.

If you are a passenger connecting through another airport to get to your destination, and time is pressing, it may be helpful to know what the minimum connection times are that are provided for larger airports. Also, if you book a ticket with a connection with less than the minimum connection time, the airline is not obligated to help you out because it was already a "hot", or illegal connection - just another reason why it's important to be aware of minimum connection times.
