Timing will be most determined by how thick the burger patties are. Depending on your air fryer and cooked preference, you might need to add a little time for thicker patties, or a little less of thin patties. Some frozen patties come pre-seasoned, while others are not. Season to taste if needed. You don't need to thaw the burger patties before air frying. Do not preheat the air fryer before cooking the frozen patties.
