I am looking to book tickets for next weekend from LAX to MAN.
If I book two separate tickets, first LAX to AMS and the second AMS to MAN departing the same day, will I be required to clear immigration at AMS? I am not a U.S. citizen so I will need a Schengen visa if I have to enter the Netherlands.
But since I am going to a non-Schengen country, can I transit without having to go through immigration? Since all KLM flights to MAN use D gates at AMS, can I transfer from E to D airside? Again, it will be two separate tickets.
