An Air Canada Boeing 767-300, registration C-GHLV performing flight AC-7263 from Bogota (Colombia) to Punta Cana (Dominican Republic) with 2 crew, was enroute at FL380 about 170nm east of Barranquilla (Colombia) when the aircraft began to seemingly climb and descend. The crew reported they had unreliable airspeed indications, requested a block altitude and decided to divert to Barranquilla. The aircraft landed safely on Barranquilla's runway 05 about 55 minutes after the first larger altitude deviation (+250 feet) according to the aircraft's Mode-S transmitter.
