Flight 666 flies last ever trip to HEL on Friday the 13th

A Finnair flight that took off Friday morning might give pause to the superstitious: Flight 666 to "HEL" on Friday the 13th.

There's no day where superstitions come into focus more than on Friday the 13, widely considered for years and years to be the unluckiest day in the calendar year (it usually falls at least once and occasionally up to three times each year).

Sadly, per Finnair, such a trip won't happen again because the airline's flight data is being reordered at the end of the month, and the flight will be renumbered as 954.

Some fun-loving Finns at Helsinki Airport weren't about to miss the opportunity to see Flight 666 off in style.

Since 2006, Nordic airline Finnair has been flying courageous passengers from Copenhagen, Denmark, to Helsinki, Finland, on Friday the 13th.

'As of Oct 29, some of our flight numbers in our network will change and our AY666 flight from Copenhagen to Helsinki will change to AY954. In 11 years, it's flown on that route 21 times. I'm not a superstitious man.

It will depart from Denmark at 1.20pm and is scheduled to arrive shortly before 4pm.

'If there's some passenger who is anxious about this 666, our cabin crew is always happy to help them'.

A fear of the number 13 has been given the scientific name triskaidekaphobia, with a fear of Friday 13th dubbed paraskevidekatriaphobia.
