Malpensa airport to Stresa


I am arriving Malpensa airport at 7.45 am and I need to go to Stresa, there is one train at 8.46 am from Malpensa airport (with one change at Busto Arsizio) and after that at 10.19 am. Can someone who has experience at Milan airport please advise if it is realistic to pass immigration, customs, collect baggage, get train tickets and board train within 1 hour ? If I miss the 8.46 am train than I will be reaching Stresa at 12.20 pm instead of 10.37 am.

Assuming you are coming from outside the Schengen area, I would say making that 8.46 train is next to impossible. Relax, have breakfast, browse a couple of shops, and take the next train.

BTW, you have probably found out already that the direct ALI bus has an even worse timetable (dep. 8.40 and 11.40)..
