With airplanes this is solved, by the big infrastructure ( cities sometimes have even 2-3 airports ).
Where I live ( Berlin ) with a flight to NYC would look like :
1. City center -> TXL - 20m
2. Check-in / security - 30m ( no joke, the airport is small )
3. Flight - 9h 15m
4. Check-out / luggage - 50m
5. EWR -> City center - 50m
------------- TOTAL ---- 11h 25m
For a very high profile requirement - say, some kind of huge emergency - you could land the BFR anywhere there's a solid surface the size of a soccer field. Zero infrastructure required.
Getting it out of there again would be difficult, but you could have a team of experts and a whole lot of material resources literally drop down from the sky anywhere on Earth in a matter of hours. Most of that duration would be spent loading the human and material cargo into the rocket.
We have no way of doing that currently.
P.S.: And if the emergency is big enough, you could drop the whole thing into the ocean near the shore and just jettison the passengers and cargo shortly before impact.
Rapid intervention anywhere on Earth. Literally.
Plus you get all the benefits of paying for a Virgin Galactic trip
