Should landlords have the right to refuse DSS tenants?10:43 AM, 20th May 2019

I rent a flat. The landlord has not given me permission to sub let.
I want to put the flat on airbnb and occasionally have airbnb guests staying in the flat when I am not there. I have not asked the landlord whether they will allow this.
I would like to know:
a) Will I be in breach of the lease with the landlord? I.e. will allowing airbnb guests to stay in the flat for an odd weekend here and there count as subletting?
b) If so, what can the landlord realistically do if they find out that I am in breach of the lease? e.g. can the landlord evict me for being in breach/take my deposit /sue me for damages?
c) How can I best protect myself in this situation from any liability to the landlord?
