Notification to members on the achievement of top tier status has begun and will continue throughout early 2006. The notifications also include details on how elite-level members can choose their benefit package via the Internet.

Members qualify for Super Elite, Elite or Prestige membership levels by earning status miles and status segments through flights booked with Air Canada and its Star Alliance partners. Status miles and status segments earned in 2005 count toward top tier benefits for 2006. The qualification levels for 2006 and 2007 top tier status remain the same: Prestige level requires 25,000 status miles or 25 segments; Elite, 35,000 miles or 50 segments; Super Elite, 100,000 miles or 100 segments.
