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

Tegel Airport To Close In 2012

Where else would it be flying, but HEL?

For the most superstitious among us, Friday 13 is a day to be avoided.

The final destination for passengers on this Friday the 13th flight is HEL.

So if you're feeling a bit nervous about what the day might bring, consider the plight of passengers aboard a Finnair flight from Copenhagen to Helsinki. As the carrier is switching around some flight numbers later this month, Flight AY666 will become AY954.

The route has been regularly flown for some 11 years - though after today the airline is changing the numbers so it will no longer be known as the AY666. If you're scared of the number 666, you may have hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia.

Flight 666 to HEL has become famous since Finnair started the route in 2006.

Some fun-loving Finns at Helsinki Airport weren't about to miss the opportunity to see Flight 666 off in style. The flight has fallen on Friday 13th 21 times throughout its operational history, with no reported ill effects.

The last was in January, when AY666 made a totally normal, safe landing in Helsinki, despite potentially troubling factors for those with severe superstitions, like a 13-year-old aricraft.

But on every occasion, the plane has landed without any problem.
