Finnair Flight AY666 took off from Copenhagen, Denmark, at 13:20 local time (1:20 p.m.) on Friday headed for Helsinki, Finland, according to Finnair's flight list.

Finnair said in a statement AY666 flight's number will be changed to AY954.

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.

No doubt there will be an audible sigh of relief when it lands in Helsinki shortly before 4pm. "Luckily we managed to get the gate arrival in the end, and as we do things double-well here, the gate is 13+13=26!" the airport tweeted.

Few holidays draw as much superstition around the paranormal as Friday the 13th - particularly in the rare occasion that it falls in October, thereby preceding Halloween.

But today marks the last ever flight 666 bound for HEL.

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 number will not, however, be 666. "It's only a coincidence for me", he added.
