In a general sense, yes. The larger/heavier the aircraft, the faster it will need to be travelling relative to the wind to take off, and the longer it takes to decelerate when landing. Of course, this also depends on the available power for take off and the presence of things like thrust reversers for landing, the particular aircraft has. This is that kind of question that has a general answer but there will always be exceptions.
