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

Finnair Flight AY666 took off from Copenhagen, Denmark, at 13:20 local time (1:20 p.m.) on Friday headed for Helsinki, Finland, according to Finnair's flight list.

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. Twenty-one times over the past 11 years, Finnair flights numbered 666 have departed for Finland's Helsinki-Vantaa airport, whose airport code is HEL, on a Friday the 13th. If you're scared of the number 666, you may have hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia.

Flight 666 to HEL arrived safely - and two minutes ahead of schedule - today, on Friday the 13th.


Juha-Pekka Kidasto, pilot of the flight on September 13 2013, told the Associated Press at the time flying the 666 flight does not bother staff.

"Farewell to Finnair AY666", wrote the airline, "but remember, we still have a flight from SIN to HEL". "I'm not a superstitious man". "Oh, no! I won't make it in time for flight 666 to HEL" he joked in an October 13 Twitter post.

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. "It's only a coincidence for me".
