Help with flights within Europe

Hi everyone.

My wife and I will be visiting Europe this September.
We will be flying from France to Santorini via Athens where we will be changing airlines.
The last connecting flight from Athens to Santorini leaves at around 6:30 PM. Our flight from France arrives in Athens at around 5:20 PM.
Given the ease of travel within EU countries does anyone know if this is sufficient time for us to catch the connecting flight? I would prefer to not have to spend a night in Athens.
Can our luggage be checked thru to Santorini even though the flights are on 2 different carriers?

You will be entering from another Schengen country, so there will be no passport control or customs. Check in online and print out your boarding passes before you leave France. You need to contact the airline to see if your bags can be checked through to Santorini. If not, and you have already checked in online, you can use the luggage drop off point instead of joining the airline checkin line. Athens Airport is small and very efficient, so a 1hr 10 min layover is tight but doable, as long as the flight from France arrives on time.

I appreciate the feedback.
Heimdall- Could you please elaborate on the luggage drop off point?
kybourbon- Our flight from France to Athens is on Air France. The connection to Santorini is TBD. I guess Aegean or Olympic?
Thanks again.
