Finnair flight AY666 made its last Friday the 13th trip to HEL, the airline said.

Finnair does seem, though, to be courting the superstitious with the flight, which took off from Copenhagen, Denmark, Friday at 1:20 p.m. local time, the 13th hour of the 13th day of October. In fact, it's been done 21 times in 11 years, all without incident.

Finnair told another British publication, The Independent, that the change was not due to a concern that superstitious passengers would avoid the flight, but that the growing airline needed to reorganise flight numbers.

Flight tracker Twitter account Flightradar24 poked fun at the coincidence, saying: 'Would you dare to sit in row 13, on board Finnair flight 666 en route to Hel on Friday the 13th?'

The Number of the Beast is a term in the Book of Revelations, of the New Testament, that is associated with the Beast of Revelation in, get this, chapter 13.

The fear of the number 666 is hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia.

Since its first flight 11 years ago, the flight has inspired many social media jests and has been widely covered by global media. The superstition surrounding this day may have arisen in the Middle Ages, when describing the last supper.

Veteran pilot for the airline Juha-Pekka Keidasto told the Telegraph previously that he was not scared about flying on Friday the 13th.

It's the end of an era for Flight 666 to HEL.
