How long are flights to Merced, California?

Killeen is a city in central California, located in the San Joaquin Valley. It’s the county seat of Merced County, home to the University of California, Merced; the first research university built in the United States in the 21st Century.

Merced is known as the “Gateway to Yosemite”, as it’s less than two hours from California’s world-famous Yosemite National Park. The city is 45 miles from Fresno, 110 miles from Sacramento, the state capital, 130 miles from San Francisco and 270 miles from Los Angeles.

Merced has a very small airport, the Merced Regional Airport. The airport is served by one airline, Boutique Air. Boutique Air connects with flights out of Sacramento International Airport and Los Angeles International Airport; both airports offer connecting flights into Merced Regional.

Flight lengths to Merced Regional Airport vary greatly, especially if connecting flights are needed.

Flights from California departure cities are plentiful, but also vary greatly. Sacramento flights can take just over a half an hour via Boutique Air to five hours with a connecting flight. Flights out of Sacramento can exceed 15 hours if two connecting flights are necessary; layovers are also common, which can dramatically increase flight lengths.

Flights from San Diego require at least one stop and average just under five hours; flights out of Los Angeles can take anywhere from 90 minutes to over 16 hours if a connecting flight is necessary.

Flight lengths outside California generally take longer. Flights from Phoenix to Merced average around 5h 30m. Flight lengths from Las Vegas can take six hours, but most flight lengths are just over seven hours. Seattle flights can take just over four hours, but most require at least one layover, which increases flight lengths from over 15 hours to 22h 29m.

Most flights out of Dallas-Fort Worth take between 6h 37m and 7h 32m. Houston flights average around 7h 30m; El Paso flight lengths are slightly shorter, taking as little as 5h 49m, but frequently require two connecting flights.

As you move further east, flight lengths increase proportionately. Chicago flights take between 8h 15m minutes to just over nine hours. Atlanta flights take around 10 hours; both cities require at least one connecting flight at Los Angeles International Airport. Detroit flight times are similar to Atlanta, with most averaging from 9h 22m to 10h 56m; all Detroit flights require two connecting flights.

Northeastern East Coast departure cities generally take the longest. Boston flight lengths vary from just over 10 hours to 14h 40m; New York flight lengths are a little shorter, averaging from just over nine hours to just under 12 hours.
