The airline said the perceived unluckiness of the date, combined with the number 666 and the "HEL" destination, has not appeared to have any affect on passenger numbers for flights.

The Nordic airline chose to retire the flight number after its trip cheduled to depart on the 13th hour of October 13, 2017.

It still operates a regular flight from Singapore's Changi Airport to Helsinki, meaning you can still go to HEL via SIN.

"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. The Flight 666 will depart from the Danish capital at 1:20 pm and will arrive in Helsinki around 4 pm.

Some fun-loving Finns at Helsinki Airport weren't about to miss the opportunity to see Flight 666 off in style.




The flight has been a long-running source of amusement for the pilots.

Veteran pilot Juha-Pekka Keidasto told The Telegraph he's not anxious about flying on Friday the 13th. I'm not a superstitious man.

The last time the flight happened on Friday the 13th was in January.

A fear of the number 13 has been given the scientific name triskaidekaphobia, with a fear of Friday 13th dubbed paraskevidekatriaphobia.

Six hundred and sixty-six is called the "number of the Beast" in chapter 13 of the Book of Revelation in the New Testament of the Bible.
