I was going to have an interview but the interviewer didn't appear on time, leaving a message asking me if the conversation could be postponed for 1 hour. I agreed, but the interviewer didn't put in appearance after an hour and a half.
So I suggested we have that conversation another day.
Now I have received a letter offering their apologies for that incident.
How should I react to it? What would you say?
P.S. I would be grateful if you would point out any mistakes you might find in the post.

The title of your thread suggests that you want to accept the apology. If that is the case then you would just say that you appreciate and accept that apology and ask when the re-scheduled interview will be. That is, of course, if you still wish to work for such a badly-organised person!
Sorry, I haven't mentioned an important detail that the letter with the apology also asking me to have another interview. I am going to accept that proposal but I am just a little puzzled should I write something in return to their apology like 'I accept your apology' or something? In case I should, I'd like you to suggest any options.
P.S. They had said they were late from a meeting just before the interview started.
P.P.S. What would be the difference between an apology and apologies in this particular case? I feel like we can say either way, am I wrong?

You're right that you can use "apology" and "apologies" in this context, but your thread title used "apologise", the spelling of the verb.
I would say "an appearance." Is this an AmE/BrE difference?put in appearance
No, we do the same.
