Launching its first module in 2022, the upcoming Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway (LOP-G) or simply the Gateway will be a space station assembled in cis-lunar space, most likely on a Near Rectilinear Halo Orbit (NRHO). The best transfer strategy to the LOP-G remains an open question, one candidate involves going to an intermediate Halo as a parking orbit. The focus of this work is on the transfer methodology between Halo orbits. Two burns direct transfers can provide simple transfer trajectories, however when longer transfer time is permitted, structures of the natural dynamics of the Earth-Moon system, such as manifolds, can be exploited for transfers with lower cost in velocity increment dv. In this work, low thrust trajectories, Lambert arcs and new manifold intersection methods will be compared for the lowest cost dv.
