Right now, the answers are
Canadian Pacific Air Lines and Canadian Pacific Steamships
BOAC-Cunard and Cunard Eagle, Cunard
UAT, Chargeurs Reunis

If one was to remove "passenger" and "concurrently"
Maersk Air / Maersk could be added

If just "concurrently" alone
...... (hint: another European shipping/airline)

Seat 2A, how did you like doing YVR-LAX in 4 days/3 nts with ~8-9 meals instead of <3 hours and 1 if lucky?
Not an answer but another shipping and airline combination would be Fred. Olsen Airtransport of Norway.
Their airline operation only carried cargo and continued into the 1990s when they were flying L188 Electras on behalf of one of the major air courier companies (DHL?).
