Khalid Amin, who has more than 15 years’ of experience in e-commerce and digital marketing with travel companies such as SuperBreak and British Airways, will now lead on digital enhancements at the open access operator.

A growth in e-ticket usage has seen more customers using the Hull Trains app, and Khalid said the first change he is planning is to further improve the app.
