You can take bus no 78 from airport to bus station KTEL MAKEDONIA.

then you get the bus to Xanthi.

It is very easy :)

hi.i doubt you can,but i don't think you have to..there are always plenty of tickets when you arrive in a ktel station(apart maybe from special days like holidays)..that is always the case when i travel with a ktel bus..

since i haven't done the specific route i hope flatexpert or anyone else who has done the route can confirm that.

It is not possible to buy ticket online.

you just go there in the ticket office in the bus station and ask for a ticket. if the bus is full, then you have to wait for a coulpe of hours until the next one.
