Flight 666 flew to HEL on Friday the 13th for the last time (and everyone lived!)

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

Friday marked the very last time the notorious Finnair Flight 666 took off from Copenhagen, Denmark (CPH), and flew directly to Helsinki, Finland (HEL), on Friday the 13th — something that's happened only 21 times since the spooky flight made its devilish debut 11 years ago.

The 75-minute flight — which landed safely, by the way — isn't going away, it's simply being assigned a new number at the end of the month, Finnair told flyers via Twitter.

"AY 666 from Copenhagen to Helsinki will become AY954" on Oct. 29, the company explained.

Fearless flyers who hurry can still get the full Flight 666 to HEL experience — just never again on Friday the 13th, which may make the trip slightly more enticing for those who suffer with triskaidekaphobia, or fear of the number 13. (Though, really, it's hard to imagine any passenger on this flight struggling with superstitions of any sort.)

As for Finnair, they're saying so long to 666 with a wink, and a clever invitation to join another flight — this one from Singapore to Helsinki.

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