I need help from some MAN experts. Their website is not very helpful.
I am interesting in buying a ticket with VS from DUS to MCO. It's a through fare and all one ticket.
DUS-MAN on BD (op by LH)
MAN-MCO on VS
MCO-MAN on VS
MAN-DUS on BE
Again, this is all on one ticket, VS is using BD and BE as feeder for the german markets, although they don't codeshare.
Now I need some information about the transit in MAN.
I am in international transit in MAN. BD op by LH is arriving in Terminal 1. VS is departing Terminal 2. Is there an airside link, which would prevent me to enter UK immigration? Bags will be checked through, but I will need to collect my VS onward boarding pass in MAN. Will I need to enter UK, go landside and take the train to terminal 2? How will people without UK visa do this? or do they have any possibility for international passengers to transfer airside, i.e. with a bus? As far as I understand T1 and T2 are two different buildings.
On the return, I will arrive in T2 and need to go to T3. Same problem here. Bags will be checked through, but will I be able to remain airside and in transit without clearing UK immigration? and if so, then does BE have airside transfer desks to receive my onward boarding pass?
Thank you for your thoughts about this. The MAN airport website is very bad showing possible flight connection options.
