And the hardiest few would book that flight straight to HEL.

What's more, the flight departed 20 minutes after the 13 hour of the day, but today's flight will be the last of 21 times FinnAir has flown the route on Friday 13 since 2006.

Today will be the last time Flight 666 flies to Hel, as the airline has made a decision to change the flight number.

The flight number has become iconic in flying circles, with pilots joking about it.

But the flight, from Copenhagen in Denmark, arrived ahead of schedule in Helsinki, at 3.47pm local time.

A spokesman told the Independent: "We are a growing airline and we are reorganising our flight numbers to make room for additional flight numbers to be used".

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

The last was in January, when AY666 made a totally normal, safe landing in Helsinki, despite potentially troubling factors for those with severe superstitions, like a 13-year-old aricraft. I'm not a superstitious man.

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

The fear of the number 666 is hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia. "It's only a coincidence for me".
