Russian born Artur Strakhov, who lives in London but used to live on the island, filmed his experience on his phone.

It shows a member of AirBaltic searching for the Isle of Man on Google Maps, then refusing to let him board his flight to London.

After being told to send the airline his marriage certificate via email, Artur got his boarding pass but was told it was his own mistake for “not having a correct Visa.”
