Covid-19 PCR test with fast results for traveling

Can anyone advise somewhere to get a Covid 19 PCR test with results in 72hrs? Ive tried a few places and they are all saying it takes 5-7days to get results. Need a fast turnaround for an Emirates flight.

I heard from a friend of mine that she got one here and did get results within 48 hrs for travel. Their website makes it sound like you can't just get one for travel if you are asymptomatic but I think they will give you one.
