There’s a highway to hell, sure. But there are also flights to HEL, flight number 666 in fact. The famed Finnair flight travels from Copenhagen (CPH) to Helsinki (HEL) on a fairly regular basis, and is plenty amusing on most days. But on Friday the 13th, it picks up a little extra charm.

What’s more is that, this year, the plane is in its 13th year of service, according to The Mirror, which just lays the superstition on so thick that it’s amazing the Airbus A320 can even get off the ground. But even with all that set against it, the flight landed without issue and on time.

This isn’t the first time flight 666 has taken off on Friday the 13th, and it surely won’t be the last. The flight’s crew, in years past, have seen the whole thing as a big joke. “It has been quite a joke among the pilots,” pilot Juha-Pekka Keidasto told The Guardian in 2013. “I’m not a superstitious man. It’s only a coincidence for me.”

Hopefully the good luck keeps up.
