Having overheard the CEO arrange for the agricultural division to be liquidated and the profits evacuated by plane to the Cayman Islands, the team hastily improvises to get aboard. They must steal the valuables after identifying the courier(s) during the flight. Worse, it turns out the CEO's diabolic plan involves blowing it up. Written by KGF Vissers

The team is clearly breaking into GenoGrow at night, and the flight they are to catch leaves "in an hour" - yet it is clearly daytime when they arrive at the airport. An hour is not enough time to go from full night to full day.

However, the time stamp when they begun the break in says "4:10am" (just prior to Sophie asking the guards whether the rave is there) and the exterior shot of the city appears as though daylight is just starting to light the horizon. Depending on how long it took them to acquire the information (and they had to walk up to the 30th floor from the ground level, evidenced by the "G" on the elevator) it is not unlikely that an hour from when they left the building to arriving at the airport is ample time for day to break.
