Continental Airlines Inc. said Wednesday elite-level frequent fliers would be eligible for new benefits.

The airline said beginning Jan. 1 that Platinum Elite members of its OnePass program would be eligible to get invitation-only Presidential Platinum Elite status based on how much they spend on travel at Continental and its affiliates.

Passengers who reach 75,000 miles can get Platinum Elite status.

Customers who earn at least 100,000 Elite miles or 120 points will get four one-way certificates to upgrade to domestic first class or international business class on Continental, Continental Micronesia or Copa Airlines.
