A passenger tunnel connecting Terminals 3 and 4 and cargo expansions with an eye on Amazon.com (Nasdaq: AMZN) are part of long-term plans eyed at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

The Phoenix City Council and Federal Aviation Administration are being briefed by airport officials on 20-year growth plans at Sky Harbor.

Some of those plans include a potential $194 million passenger tunnel and corridor connecting Terminals 3 and 4.

Terminal 2 at Sky Harbor is also slated to be demolished. That will cost $33 million with the old terminal building site scheduled to be used to park airplanes.

Sky Harbor plans also have an eye on the growth of cargo and e-commerce led by Amazon.com

Long-term plans call for as much as $850 million to put towards improved and expanded cargo operations at Sky Harbor. That includes a new center to screen package.

The long-term plans for Sky Harbor include a $5.7 billion in projects at the city owned and managed airport.
