Let and be real or complex Banach spaces. We show that a surjective linear map preserving invertibility in both directions is either of the form or the form , where , , , and are bounded invertible linear operators. As an application we improve a result of Larson and Sourour on algebraic reflexivity of elementary operators of length one.
