Connection time in Gatwick to get to Venice

Hello,
I'm planning a trip to Italy in March, and I've found a flight package on Expedia from the US to Venice. There is a connection in London (Gatwick) for the final flight to Venice. The flight arriving in Gatwick is British Airways, as is the connection to Venice. Both flights use the North Terminal. The connection time is 50 minutes. It seems brief, so I'm wondering if it's possible. If I miss it, would British Airways just put me on the next flight to Venice? Thanks for any help!

You should make it. You will go through "Flight Connections" Follow the signs. Do not go through passport controls/customs.

You will need to go through security again (remember the 1 carry on rule through security) and you will be right back in the departure terminal.

BA will protect you in case something goes wrong with the first flight or if there are long lines at the security check.

Have a grea trip!

yes - since it is the same ticket/package they will get you to Venice on the next available flight.

Thanks for the info! The return flight is through Heathrow, which I've heard is quite a different story, but I have 3 hours for that layover!
