Porter Airline: online check-in? Pre-flight seat selection?

We will be flying Porter for the first time this May.

Do they offer online check-in and/or pre-flight seat selection?

Looking forward to hearing from anyone of you. Thank you.

Hi,

Well, the first thing we did was go to the Porter website...

From the main page:

Seat selection from their FAQs:

Usually selecting a specific seat on line at Porter is 20.00 (per direction). if my memory serves me well. Also I would suggest you sign up for their VIP program. It is free to join and you will be able to collect points to put towards future travel with Porter. And I would suggest you check their website daily, they have had several sales the last few months (50% off base fares).

P.S. I just had a look at Porter regarding their policies for seat selections and just to clarify my post the charge for selecting a seat is for firm fare bookings (which usually are the least expensive).

I copied this from the Porter website regarding choosing your own seat..

"Firm fare reservations will be charged $20 CAD/USD plus tax, per flight, per seat. There are no additional charges for Flexible or Freedom fare reservations."
