Flight 666 takes final Friday the 13th flight to 'HEL'

Flight 666 takes final Friday the 13th flight to 'HEL'

While there are several theories surrounding the day, a group of people who consider it be a superstition is doing the most unexpected.

There's bound to be a few nervous fliers on board and their state of mind won't be helped by the fact that the number of the flight is 666 and that their destination is HEL, short, of course for Helsinki.

"We are a growing airline and we are reorganising our flight numbers to make room for additional flight numbers to be used", said a spokesperson for Finnair.

'In 11 years, we've flown 21 times the AY666 flight to HEL on Friday the 13th'.

Plane passengers dubbed "the bravest in the world" will this afternoon board flight 666 to HEL on Friday the 13th.

Finnair, the Finnish flag carrier that has operated the otherwise routine Copenhagen to Helsinki route for 11 years, is renumbering its flights at the end of the month.

Pilot Juha-Pekka Keidasto once said: "It has been quite a joke among the pilots".

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

The irrational fear of the number 13 is called triskaidekaphobia, by the way. Paraskevidekatriaphobia is another term for the fear of "Friday the 13th".

The fear of the number 666 is hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia.
