Flight 666 to HEL on Friday the 13th Arrives Safely

Friday, 13 Oct 2017 02:42 PM

Flight 666 to HEL — the airport code for Helsinki, Finland — arrived safely in the Finnish capital on Friday the 13th, the last time the seemingly spooky flight will happen.

The Finnair flight took off from Copenhagen, Denmark, in the 13th hour of Friday the 13th, headed for Helsinki Vantaa airport, The Associated Press reported.

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

The flight started 11 years ago and has fallen on Friday the 13th 21 times with no reported ill effects.

Still, Finnair has decided to retire the flight number. As the carrier is switching around some flight numbers later this month, Flight AY666 will become AY954.
