Following Bertoin who considered the ergodicity and exponential decay of Lévy processes in a finite domain, we consider general Lévy processes and their ergodicity and exponential decay in a finite interval. More precisely, given $T_a=\inf\{t>0:\,X_t\notin $. Under general conditions, e.g. absolute continuity of the transition semigroup of the unkilled Lévy process, we prove that the killed semigroup is a compact operator. Thus, we prove stronger results in view of the exponential ergodicity and estimates of the speed of convergence. Our results are presented in a Lévy processes setting but are well applicable for Markov processes in a finite interval under information about Lebesgue irreducibility of the killed semigroup and that the killed process is a double Feller process. For example, this scheme is applicable to a work of Pistorius.<br />
