Finnair service AY666, which flies from Copenhagen to Helsinki, where the airport code is HEL, is changing its flight number later this month.

According to a tweet from the airline, AY666 will take to the skies 15 more times before being retired due to expansion.

Your worst nightmare is about to end: today is the last time you will have to face the possibility of taking Flight 666 to HEL on Friday 13th.

From 29 October, the flight will be renamed AY954.

"In 11 years, we've flown 21 times the AY666 flight to HEL on Friday the 13th". For example Britain's Daily Mail asks, "Would you want to board flight 666 to HEL on Friday 13th?"

I'm not a superstitious person but even if that was a free flight to the magical world of Narnia I would have to skip it.

The flight from Copenhagen to Helsinki is scheduled to depart at 1.20pm local time, arriving in the Finnish capital at 3.55pm.

"If there's some passenger who is anxious about this 666, our cabin crew is always happy to help them". Unfortunately, this will not be the last Friday the 13th.

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. The 666 is considered that of the evil with Biblical reference.
