Passengers board last ever Flight 666 to HEL on Friday the 13th

Simon Barrette, communications manager at Finnair, told McClatchy that Friday's trip would be the last go-round for flight 666 to HEL, as the company is switching around some flight numbers later this month.

The flight departed at 1:18 p.m. local time from Copenhagen, Denmark, and landed at 3:53 at Finland's Helsinki-Vantaa airport - which has a three-letter airport code of "HEL".

This means today was the last chance for travellers with no fear to step aboard the infamous plane ride.

Finnair said that it successfully operated 21 Friday 13 flights from Copenhagen to Helsinki with the unfortunate number over a period of 11 years.

From 29 October, the flight will be renamed AY954. The airline declined to comment on whether the change had been made with concerned or superstitious passengers in mind.

Today will be the last time Flight 666 flies to Hel, as the airline has chose to change the flight number.

However, jesters and credulous folk can still get their kicks on another flight going from SIN to HEL - Singapore to Helsinki.

Bold passengers will this afternoon board flight 666 to Hel on Friday the 13th. I'm not a superstitious man.

That didn't stop one passenger booked on Friday's HEL-bound trip, who somewhat unluckily was given a seat on the 13th row, from missing the flight. If you're scared of the number 666, you may have hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia.
