An AirAsia Airbus A320-200, registration 9M-AFL performing flight AK-1519 from Taipei (Taiwan) to Kota Kinabalu (Malaysia) with 133 people on board, was in the initial climb out of Taipei when the crew stopped the climb at 5000 feet reporting a fire indication of the right hand engine (CFM56). The crew worked the relevant checklist, shut the engine down, activated the fire suppression and returned to Taipei for a safe landing about 15 minutes after departure. Attending emergency services found no trace of fire.

The flight was cancelled.

The airline later reported the indication had been false.

Taiwan's Civil Aviation Authority reported there had been no fire, the fire indication was the result of a malfunction of the fire detection system. No investigation has been opened.
