An Aeromexico Boeing 737-800, registration N520AM performing flight AM-580 from Cancun to Mexico City (Mexico) with 120 passengers and 7 crew, was climbing out of Cancun's runway 12R when smoke appeared in the cabin obviously originating from the air conditioning outlets. The crew stopped the climb at FL110 and decided to return to Cancun, worked the checklists which resulted in the smoke subsiding and landed safely on runway 12R about 15 minutes after stopping the climb. The passengers disembarked normally.

The flight was cancelled.

The incident aircraft was able to position to Mexico City about 8 hours after landing back.
