A Wizz Air Airbus A320-200, registration HA-LYK performing flight W6-3394 from Bologna (Italy) to Cluj (Romania), had landed on Cluj's runway 25 and slowed down to taxi speed (below 10 knots over ground) about 1260 meters/4100 feet down the runway. The crew subsequently attempted to turn around on the runway and steered the aircraft to the left edge but went beyond the left edge and stopped for about 5 minutes. The aircraft subsequently turned around and taxied to the apron without further incident.

The airport reported the aircraft went slightly off the runway due to strong winds and winter conditions which would not have permitted to turn around on the runway.
