Flying query
Please can anybody tell me what ID I need for adults and children when flying to Isle of Man from Gatwick.  I phoned Easyjet and they told me to contact the Isle of Man Embassy !
Thanks for any advice.

RE: Flying query
Thanks guys, when I phoned Easyjet the woman didn't seem to know where the Isle of Man was.  I hope the pilot has a better idea !

RE: Flying query
I make a point of using my old git's bus pass. 

Have to make some use of it as we no longer have any buses locally

RE: Flying query
Donny, as a regular flyer I can offer the following;

Legal requirements
There are none. The IOM is within the common travel area and no id is formally required. British Airways operate the route from London City and no ID is needed.

Airline requirements
Herein lies the problem. We have Aer Lingus, Flybe, Easyjet and BA all flying in and out and each operate differently.

I flew to LGW last Friday and needed nothing. Returning from LGW however the airline asked for nothing but LGW security did.
Gatwick North is international and domestic and has no way of separating the passengers. IOM generally flies from Gate 55 and the entry to 55 is security controlled. When you enter the security search area at checkin you photo is taken and at gate 55 the photo is recalled to ensure you haven't swapped your boarding card with anyone else. It was at this security check that I was asked for ID. Normally, the officer is just scanning boarding cards.

The moral seems to be make sure you carry something - just in case.

RE: Flying query
I've flown a couple of times from Liverpool and have never been asked for any ID / passport etc. Quite surprising really considering its jobsworth central.
