In 2015, Ostreicher launched Regal Card, an airport lounge and travel-benefits membership program as a sister concern of Regal Wings. In the late 2016, Regal Wings partnered with China-based lounge developer DragonPass.

In 2016, Ostreicher created GeeFi partnering with Hong Kong-based YouYou Mobile, a portable device that provides frequent travelers unlimited high speed 4G internet in more than 100 countries. In November 2016, GeeFi launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter which raised $213,404 in 34 days exceeding original goal of $20,000. However, as of the middle of July 2017, he has yet to deliver the device to all of his backers, and has renegged on the promise of actual unlimited 4G internet for Kickstarter backers, instead capping users at 500Meg (in a few countries 1Gig) of 4G internet, then severely throttling speeds. Communications from the company to their customers continue to be poor at best and the company itself has described the situation as a mess. Additionally, backers have identified a critical design flaw that requires a user to burn a $10 24 hour day pass in order to keep the software on the device updated; the user has no way to stop this, except to keep the device off. In 2017, he patented One Bag Tag, together with his mentor and long-time friend Bryan Leibman and cousin Chuck Weinreb which provides luggage tracking service for air travels.

Apart from Regal Wings, Ostreicher founded Miles 4 Flights in 2012, which helps individuals convert their airline mileage into flights. In the same year, he started Harei At, the first dating site for orthodox Jewish marriage-minded singles. Following its success, he launched another Jewish dating site called Jedding for Jews of all walks.

Ostreicher has been involved in helping his uncle Jacob Ostreicher in his release from the Bolivian Pamsolan prison where he was held for 18 months without having committed a crime of any sorts. He was later released by actor-activist Sean Penn who went to visit him in Bolivia.

Personal life and philanthropy

Ostreicher is an ultra Orthodox Jew and a member of the Brooklyn community. In 2013, Ostreicher donated $500,000 to Bonei Olam, a communal organization that aids married couples dealing with infertility. He idolizes Barry Liben of Tzell Travel Group as his inspiration to travel business.
