Narrative:
Ryanair flight FR314 from Berlin-Schönefeld Airport, Germany, was involved in incident after landing at Bucharest Henri Coanda International Airport in Romania.
During the initial approach, the crew listened to ATIS information, which specified that the runways in use 26L/26R were contaminated with water, the wind direction was from 320º with an intensity of 12 kts, and the length of runway 26R/08L was reduced, having the end/threshold displaced by 1250 m. In the final approach area, the crew received clearance for a standard ILS approach to runway 26R, by contacting Otopeni Approach.
The ILS approach procedure to runway 26R went normally. In the final approach phase, Otopeni Tower informed the flight that the wind direction and intensity changed, namely from direction 60º with an intensity of 10 kts. With the sudden change of wind conditions, a shower of heavy rain started.
Landing went normally on the runway touchdown area. After landing, the crew started to brake the aircraft, but they did not manage to reduce the landing roll speed in order to clear the runway on taxiway W and continued rolling in direction, overrunning the displaced threshold end by approximately 100 m. While overrunning it, the aircraft touched an over ground luminous signal light with the right main landing gear.

A similar incident happened on June 22 involving a Turkish Airlines Airbus A321.

There was a Notam in effect that referred to Work in Progress, starting June 22:
E) TRIGGER NOTAM - AIRAC AIP SUP 03/17 WEF 22 JUN 2017 WORK IN PROGRESS AT BUCURESTI/HENRI COANDA AIRPORT.

The AIP Supplement detailed the changes as follows:
Effective with the date 22 June 2017, at BUCURESTI / Henri Coand Airport repairing works are taking place
on runway 08L/26R. THR 08L and RWY 26R END will be displaced by 1250 m.
The new Landing Distance Available for runway 26R was 2237 meters.
