How long does it take in your city, from the time the plane's wheels first touch down on the runway, until the time you are actually?
deboarding the plane?

Too many variables, ranging from time of day, weather conditions, and even which runway the airport uses. For example, a jetBlue flight arriving on runway 13R at JFK airport exits the runway pretty much onto the jetBlue's terminal ramp. If the gate is available the taxi takes less than five minutes. A Delta flight arriving on the same runway will have to taxi most of the way around the airport to reach its gate which can take as much as 15 minutes.
At LaGuardia, with its single taxi lane alleys, you will usually have to wait for at least one, and often for as many as three flights, to push back and exit the alley before you proceed to your gate, that is, of course, if you're not stuck behind some other guy waiting for his gate to open. Sometimes, if the wait is long, you end up taxing around in circles. During a rush hour, if the weather is bad you can wait for your gate for 45 minutes to an hour.
In Sarasota, if you land on runway 14 you exit the runway pretty much onto the terminal ramp. On the other hand, if you land on runway 32 (same runway as 14, but in the opposite direction) you will have a fairly long taxi to get back to the terminal. Sarasota is not a busy airport, however, so there is never a wait for the gate.

There are too many variables. The time of day, the airport, the weather conditions, the gate status, whether or not the plane is on time, they are just too many variables.

It depends on the time of day, the specific airline (budget ones often don't have access to a skybridge), how busy the parking slots are ...
- LadyMertonLv 78 months ago
much depends on Where in the plane you are sitting-- First rows go First - then middle and then Lastly the Back.
How many people On the Flight and If the landing Gate is Ready too.

I live in Ketchikan Alaska so like 3 minutes. But then you have to take a ferry to the parking lot which runs every half hour

First person is off the plane in about 5 minutes. Never more.

My nearest airport is quite small, so we are usually getting off the plane within 5 minutes of touching down. There are only a handful of gates and they are right beside the runway and never all occupied.

About 15 to 20 minutes for taxiing, getting the door open and getting off the plane.

10 minutes .

That depends on how busy the airport is at the time. Under 10 mins if it's quiet, and over if an airbridge isn't free.
