Friday the 13th Special: Finnair's Flight 666 Takes Final Flight to HEL

Friday the 13th is known as an unlucky day in Western culture, so mix that with the Mark of the Beast and you could end up with some pretty uncomfortable passengers, especially since the flight goes straight to HEL.

No more superstitious flights for those fearless passengers.

The flight has been making the trip from Copenhagen to Helsinki regularly, and since there's a Friday the 13th two to three times in a year, the flight number, airport code and date have matched up 21 times over 11 years, Finnair said.

Finavia, which operates Finland's 21 airports, says Friday's flight landed eight minutes ahead of schedule at 3:47 p.m. local.

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.

In 2013, during another Friday the 13th flight to HEL, the Associated Press spoke with the pilot guiding the aircraft. That flight has often born the number 666 and it has often traveled on various Fridays the 13th. "I'm not a superstitious man".

Finnair Flight 666 into HEL will make its final destination journey today, as the flight number will be renamed as part of the airline's route restructuring. "It's only a coincidence for me", he added.
