An Air Asia Airbus A320-200, registration HS-ABB performing flight FD-3167 from Phuket to Chiang Mai (Thailand) with 181 people on board, was climbing out of Phuket when an engine (CFM56) ingested a number of small birds and an odour of roast feathers developed on board. The crew announced they suspected a bird strike and decided to return to Phuket for a safe landing about 30 minutes after departure.

Maintenance inspected and cleaned the engine, the aircraft was able to depart again with about 110 minutes delay and reached Chiang Mai without further odour but with a delay of about 105 minutes.
