does "overnight stops" mean "one night travelling?"

Some careers made a man a virtual nomad, and the more powerful and affluent he was, the more he resorted to air travel. Because powerful individuals have strong feelings about any President, and because President Kennedy was a man of great personal wealth, it was inevitable that many whose lives and thoughts were linked with his should have been on the move that Friday noon—in airports, or aloft, or on distant continents which, to them, were scarcely more than overnight stops.

    A place to stop, perhaps rest, and change planes in the middle of the night.

    Close, but no.
    It means it was as though these places were just a place to stop & sleep for a night on a journey to somewhere else. That is, not significant in themselves.
