Testing for Spain

I have spent hours looking and am still a bit stumped on how to get a PCR within 48 hours of flying to Spain. Has anyone worked out how this is possible in the tight timeframe? Please help me if you know...

What I've done is booked a PCR test with Zava. We land in Majorca at 09:20 on a Tuesday, so I'm assuming the test needs to be taken no earlier than 09:20 on the Sunday before. Because most of the drop off points are closed on Sundays, we'll drive to the lab (about n hour away, so not too bad), which is open for drop off on Sundays. Guaranteed results within 36 hours. If you drop off after 4pm, adds a potential extra 24 hours to result times. So I'm going to drive down with the teens on Sunday morning, test them when we get to the lab and drop straight away, to then have results back by 9:30pm on the Monday night.

But yes, it needs careful planning!!
