Also, there should be no double counting: the figures of these charters are already in the figures of e.g. Thomas Cook ...
I'm not sure about the exact contracting of all HQ charters and allotments, but at least in part of the cases (if not all) TCAB is not involved and the touroperator contracts the capacity directly from SN. Therefore those guests are charter pax for SN and customers for HQ as the touroperator but not for TCAB. So no double counting in those cases.
There is also a difference with the figures of BAC. While airlines usually apply a few economic rules on their pax reporting (in the case of SN I assume it's now 100% in line with LH Group) such as what to do with charter pax, different degrees of codeshare pax, etc. Especially with codeshare pax it can happen that both the marketing and operating carrier count them in their overall figures as some airlines just report the pax they transported themselves, while other report all those that they got revenue from (so including the ones for which they were merely the 'marketing carrier').
But an airport like BRU just uses purely operational numbers (I think they only exclude the category that they consider non-revenue pax, but not sure), so no double counting there in any case.
