The airline said the change was the result of new flight numbers, and the flight from Copenhagen to Helsinki will in the future be Flight 954.

Flight 666, which departed on the 13th hour of October 13 and headed straight for HEL (Helsinki, Finland), has arrived safely and ahead of schedule.

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

Lucky passengers flying from Copenhagen to HEL on flight 666 landed safely on Friday the 13th at Helsinki Airport.

The flight takes off at 1.20pm and lasts for one hour and 35minutes.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie says he'll be back on Thursday
Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was missing from practice on Wednesday, but it wasn't because of an injury. We had a conversation that was personal upstairs and he came in today, made a decision to leave.

"Farewell to Finnair AY666", wrote the airline, "but remember, we still have a flight from SIN to HEL".

"It has been quite a joke among the pilots", he told the newspaper in the past. 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. "It's only a coincidence for me", he added. The flight number will not, however, be 666.

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. Some claim that it has Biblical origins with 13 people present for Jesus' last supper, which is the day before Christ was crucified.

The final destination for passengers on this Friday the 13th flight is HEL.

Additionally, Finnair revealed that this isn't the first time they've journey to Helsinki aboard AY666 on Friday the 13th.
