Where do I get it from?

The bus stand is located outside the terminal building. Just follow the exit signs, after collecting all your luggage, and you will find the bus stop at no time.


A bus is without any doubt the most inexpensive option for your transfer, yet it is far from being the most convenient one. Although a bus route is available every time a flight lands, in case you 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, while the intermediate stops between the airport and the city centre are plenty. Also, it is highly unlikely the bus stop to be in front of your hotel and thus, you will have to look for the exact location of your accommodation. Finally, an urban bus takes twice the time to Alexandroupoli than a taxi ride.

Editor’s Note

Alexandroupoli urban bus timetables are formed based on the flights arrivals. Thus, every time there is a flight arrival, there will be a bus waiting for its passengers. Bus drivers wait for a small reasonable time before leaving the airport so as to be sure that all passengers are on board. Nevertheless, in case you are really late exiting the airport, it is highly possible that you will miss the bus.

Useful Tips

There is an intercity KTEL bus that connects Alexandroupoli airport to Orestiada city.
There are two additional bus routes that pass by the airport (buses 5 and 6) but since there is an urban KTEL airport bus that connects directly the airport to the city centre, you should only have to take them in case you miss the regular bus.
Always keep an eye on your personal belongings.
You can purchase your ticket on the bus but it will cost you a little bit more; having the exact amount of change is advised.
