You're assuming that the term "transit point" or "via point" is
actually good English, which claim has so far received no support
except from bilingual dictionaries (which are notoriously inaccurate
in these cases, at least wa-ei are).  Do you actually use those terms
yourself (which is sufficient evidence for me)?  Or do you have a
reasonable authority for them (OED would do, of course).

BTW, a nonstop transit of an airport is not meaningless if you're a
pilot; airports make excellent landmarks.  (Although the tower crew is
likely to spew nastygrams at you if you try it with O'Hare.)
