Last Flight 666 lands in HEL last time on Friday the 13th

Last Flight 666 lands in HEL last time on Friday the 13th

Flight tracker Twitter account Flightradar24 poked fun at the coincidence, saying: 'Would you dare to sit in row 13, on board Finnair flight 666 en route to Hel on Friday the 13th?'

The flight started in 2006 and has fallen on Friday the 13th 21 times.

In 2013, during another Friday the 13th flight to HEL, the Associated Press spoke with the pilot guiding the aircraft.

A spokesperson for Finnair said, "today will be the final time that our AY666 flight flies to HEL".

Finnair said in a statement AY666 flight's number will be changed to AY954.

Flight 666, which departed on the 13th hour of October 13 and headed straight for HEL (Helsinki, Finland), has arrived safely and ahead of schedule.

It still has a trip from SIN (Singapore's Changi Airport) to HEL.

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. "Luckily we managed to get the gate arrival in the end, and as we do things double-well here, the gate is 13+13=26!" the airport tweeted. Since black metal music is huge in that part of the world, the brutal flight has probably prompted more bragging rights than nervous glances among its passengers.

The fear of the number 666 is hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia.

Veteran pilot for the airline Juha-Pekka Keidasto told the Telegraph previously that he was not scared about flying on Friday the 13th.
