Flight 666 Safely Arrives In HEL On Friday The 13th
14 October 2017, 12:23 | Vera Richards
Bold passengers will this afternoon board flight 666 to Hel on Friday the 13th
The airline took to its Twitter feed to inform fearful passengers needing a short-hop flight from the Danish capital to the Helsinki-Vantaa airport that their days of avoiding the ominous flight are over.
The flight started 11 years ago and has fallen on Friday the 13th 21 times with no reported ill effects.
National airline Finnair announced Friday that its notorious Friday 13th flight AY 666 from Copenhagen to HEL (Helsinki) completed its last flight on Friday 13 October.
As the airline begins to re-number the flights, Flight 666 will soon become Flight 954.
As for Finnair, they're saying so long to 666 with a wink, and a clever invitation to join another flight - this one from Singapore to Helsinki. "It's only a coincidence for me". 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.
A specific fear of Friday the 13th is called Paraskevidekatriaphobia, which derives from the from the Greek word paraskeví meaning Friday, and dekatria meaning thirteen.
