Any form of travel, whether by land, sea or air, entails a certain degree of danger. Therefore, a special prayer requesting divine protection is recited at the onset of every journey. This brief prayer is called “Tefilat Haderech.”

See:

For the text of Tefilat Haderech, please see this link: http://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/379130/jewish/Text-of-the-Travelers-Prayer.htm
