A Boeing 777 operated by Japan's All Nippon Airways has made an emergency landing in Osaka after suffering engine trouble.

The airline says none of the 246 passengers or 11 crew were injured.

The flight from Osaka bound for Tokyo left at 7.18am on Wednesday local time, but the crew soon detected engine problems and asked to make an emergency landing.

"It turned around and landed back at Osaka airport at 7.50am," ANA spokeswoman Hanae Satomura said.

After departure, the pilots encountered power output problems with the left engine and abnormal temperatures in the engine's emissions, Satomura said.

All passengers and crew safely exited from the plane after the emergency landing and the airline is investigating the incident, she added.
