Schiphol-Rijk is an industrial estate in the Dutch province of North Holland. It is a part of Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and lies in the municipality of Haarlemmermeer. Schiphol-Rijk is named after the village Rijk that was demolished in the 1950s to make way for an extension of Schiphol Airport.[1]

Arkefly has its head office in Schiphol-Rijk.[2] Before its dissolution, Amsterdam Airlines also had its head office in Schiphol-Rijk.[3]
