TOKYO, Jan. 16 (Xinhua) -- All Nippon Airway (ANA) announced Wednesday to stop operation of all its Boeing 787 after one of them made an emergency landing in Japan's Takamatsu Airport earlier in the day, local media reported.

The dreamliner forced to make emergency landing took off from Ube Airport in Yamaguchi Prefecture at around 8: 10 a.m. local time to Tokyo's Haneda Airport, said Japan's NHK.

The plane forced to land at about 8: 45 a.m. local time in Takamatsu Airport at Kagawa Prefecture after smoke was detected inside the aircraft, which carried 137 passengers and crew members.

Evacuation chutes of the flight have been utilized and firefighters have reached the scene, according NHK's footage. All people are in safe condition as of now.

Local authorities said meters in the cockpit showed the accident was caused by battery problems.

Several bugs of the dreamliner have been exposed in recent flying and Japanese authorities are investigating the problems.

On Jan. 11, an ANA's Boeing 787, which took off in Haneda Airport, safely landed in western Matsuyama Airport after finding a crack in cockpit window, while two days earlier, the airline cancelled a Boeing 787 flight after detecting a brake problem under its left wing.
