Indonesia consists of hundreds of distinct native ethnic and linguistic groups. The largest – and politically dominant – ethnic groups are the Javanese. A shared identity has developed, defined by a national language, ethnic diversity, and religious pluralism within a majority Muslim population. Indonesian Airlines was an airline based in Jakarta, Indonesia. It operated domestic services. The Transportation Ministry in February 2007 delayed license revocation of 11 idle airlines, including Indonesian Airlines, to give restructuring opportunities to the operators. The airlines was established in 1999 and started operations in March 2001. In September 1999 it had won a government licence to provide schedule services on 46 routes. It previously operated flights within Indonesia from Jakarta and from Jakarta to Dubai.
Bahasa Indonesia is the official language of Indonesia, Austronesian language which has been used as a lingua franca in the Indonesian archipelago for centuries. Indonesia is the fourth most populous nation in the world. Of its large population, the number of people who speak Indonesian fluently is fast approaching 100% making Indonesian one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. Most Indonesians, aside from speaking the national language, are often fluent in another regional language like: Javanese, Sundanese and Madurese which are commonly used at home and within the local community. In East Timor, which was an Indonesian province from 1975 to 1999, Indonesian is recognized by the constitution as one of the two working languages the other being English, alongside the official languages of Tetum and Portuguese. More than living languages are spoken in Indonesia, most belong to the Austronesian language family, since Indonesian only recognizes a single official language, other languages are not recognized either at national level nor regional level, thus making Javanese the most widely spoken language without official status, and Sundanese the second in the list.
