Hi Florian, welcome to VATSIM!

We provide "top-down" coverage, meaning that the Arrival/Departure Controller from your example will provide Delivery, Ground, and Tower services for any airport within their airspace (primary and any satellites that are towered in real life). The same applies to Center.

If you're ever not sure, it's very reasonable to just tune the controller's frequency, identify yourself and your current position (important!), and check to see whether the airport is in that person's area. You can also use tools like VatSPY to see the boundaries for Centers.

Hi! Welcome to VATSIM!

When there is a lack of controllers, ATC works in a 'top-down' system. Think of it as CTR > APP > TWR > GND > DEL. If, as you say, there is only an APP controller (arrival/departure), they would control their position, APP, but also they would cover 'top-down' the TWR, GND and DEL positions. If you're in the ground at Manchester Airport, EGCC, and you only see EGCC_S_APP connected, which is the APP controller for Manchester, you can tune their frequency to get clearance and all other services that TWR, GND, and DEL would provide. 

 

EDIT: Seems like I posted the answer at the same time as Evan, oh well...
