The problems with transfers
Demand for tickets
People try to avoid buying tickets for connection flights with long layover periods. On the other hand, the airlines try their best in order to sell these tickets. For example, Turkish Airlines often offer a free stay in a hotel in Istanbul if the waiting time for the connecting flight is long, or in the case of transfers during day time - a free excursion. That is what many airlines do.

Passengers are often afraid of going out in an unknown city, because they are not familiar with it, even though the need and the interest of getting to know a new city exists.
The most common are the issues with connection, lack of knowledge about local transportation, and language skills.
What to visit
The first problem that arises is the shortage of time for searching places to visit and planning a route. The second problem is the distrust the customers hold in regards to different services, such as TripAdvisor.
Fear of missing the flight
An unknown city leads to the fear of not returning to the connection flight in time.

We use official airports council international's full-year 2013 statistics and research of percentages of transfer passengers (source).
Example for 16 airports only
Total passengers per year: 856 006 157
Total transfer passengers:
259 371 536

Minimum year revenue $1 per flight ~ $260M per year

Delta value for flight ticket varies up to $200.
For example, we ups revenue to $10 per flight.
Year revenue ~ $2,6B

Example is provided for 2013 year for 16 airport only. Now statistics growths up.
According to the Airports Council International (ACI). World Airport Traffic Report, there were 17,678 commercial airports in the world (2015)
Business model
The cost of uploading a route is included in the additional cost of the air ticket. Such a route becomes personal for the user (getting a notification at the beginning of the registration, the time before departure, etc. when passing the route in the connection city).

The revenue comes to the airline from the ticket's extra price + there is a stimulation of sales of low-paying tickets with long layovers.

For Pinsteps, the revenue also comes from the additional price of the ticket + there are new users of the application.
