An Aeromexico Boeing 737-800 headed to Mexico City turned around and returned to the Mérida International Airport less than an hour after departure in the air due to engine problems, Aviation Herald reported.

Passengers on flight AM-837 were climbing out of MID’s runway 36 when the crew shut the engine down and landed safely back on runway 10.

A replacement Boeing 737-9 MAX reached Mexico City with a delay of about six hours and 15 minutes.

The faulty aircraft was still on the ground in Mérida about seven hours after landing back, said Aviation Herald
