Reply To: Manchester T1: A Hellish experience

Back to Forum


On the opposite side, I arrived into MAN terminal 1 airside around the same time as Pat arrived landside.

There was a queue stretching right back down the corridor for immigration – no controls in place so, consequently, people pushed and shoved their way into line at the point where 2 passenger streams converge.

As usual, there was no queue for ‘foreign’ passports so they were straight through.

Time taken from leaving the aircraft to the front of the line – 57 minutes leaving me just 4 mins to catch my train to Leeds which, needless to say, I missed by 5 minutes.

Seriously, it’s a joke, this is twice in 3 weeks that I’ve waited close to an hour to get through passport control in Manchester.
