Incident: Aeromexico Connect E190 at Ciudad Juarez on Jul 23rd 2020, engine shut down in flight

An Aeromexico Connect Embraer ERJ-190, registration XA-GAI performing flight AM-118 from Ciudad Juarez to Mexico City (Mexico), was climbing out of Ciudad Juarez’s runway 03 when the left hand engine (CF34) failed prompting the crew to stop the climb at 8000 feet, shut the engine down and return to Ciudad Juarez for a safe landing on runway 03 about 25 minutes after departure.

A post flight inspection revealed metallic debris in the engine’s outlet, however, no damage to the fan blades and just minor nicks to the blades of the last turbine stage.
