Although a bus runs each time a flight lands, if you do happen to miss it, you may have to wait up to 2 hours for the next one. Moreover, you will have to carry around your personal belongings and have them exposed the public at each stop between Alexandroupoli airport and the city centre. Also, it is highly unlikely that the bus will stop directly in front of your hotel so you will probably have to look for another form of transportation to reach your accommodation.

Bus drivers wait for a reasonable amount of time before leaving the airport to ensure that all passengers are on board. However, if you take a lot of time getting your luggage or get lost in the airport, you may miss the bus and have to wait hours for the next one.
